Did you know that your old iPod could be worth hundreds of dollars? Not only are they now considered vintage Apple electronics and collectors items, they are part of history. But just how far back does Apple's history go?
But now, the could-be oldest iPhone ever was spotted in Amsterdam at the Rijksmuseum by Apple CEO Tim Cook himself. Cook is currently in Amsterdam for a tech conference and took a side trip to the Rijksmuseum with EU Digital Commissioner Neelie Kroes when they spotted what appeared to be an iPhone in a Rembrandt painting, completed nearly 350 years ago.
At the event, Commissioner Kroes said of the visit: "Tim rushes over and tells me 'Come take a look, I found a painting with an iPhone on it!' So he takes my arm and shows me a Rembrandt with a person seemingly holding an iPhone."
To which Cook replied, "I always thought I knew when the iPhone was invented, but now I’m not so sure anymore."
