    Default Man Claims He Invented The iPhone In 1992 and Sues Apple for $10 Billion

    Too bad the dude never had a patent...

    What if the iPhone was invented in 1992? Well, one man says it was.

    A Florida-based man is suing Apple for $10 billion in damages, as well as royalties on all future Apple sales, for stealing his design for an “electronic reading device,” according to The Telegraph, which obtained a copy of the lawsuit. The lawsuit alleges that the plaintiff, Thomas Ross, actually designed an iPhone-like device in 1992, but it was subsequently “hijacked and exploited by Apple’s iPhones, iPods, iPads, and others,” according to The Telegraph.

    In addition to the $10 billion, Ross wants 1.5% of all future Apple revenue.
