Apparently the iPhone was invented nearly 350 years ago, according to Apple boss Tim Cook’s interpretation of a painting. I must admit I don’t think my ancestors ever used one
Former European Commissioner Neelie Kroes recently took Cook to Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum. “Do you happen to know Tim, where and when the iPhone was invented?” Kroes asked Cook.
What do you think?
The Apple chief executive explained that in one painting from 1670 at the museum he thought he saw the subject holding an iPhone. The painting is “Man hands a letter to a woman in a hall” by Pieter de Hooch.
