Apple admits man invented iPod in 1979, but he's still not getting any money

Sketch of Kane Kramer's prototype digital music player he invented back in 1979. It stored 3½ minutes of music. The patent expired in the late 1980's.

Mail Online:

Apple has finally admitted that a British man who left school at 15 is the inventor behind the iPod.

Kane Kramer, 52, came up with the technology that drives the digital music player nearly 30 years ago but has still not seen a penny from his invention.
