Pelosi Challenges Apple 

House minority leader Nancy Pelosi recently said that Steve Jobs did not invent the iPhone.

“He was a pretty good designer. He was also good at putting things together.” Speaking before the Democratic National Convention Platform Hearing on Thursday, Pelosi said the U.S government invented the iPhone as well as other tech innovations.

“Almost everything came from federal investments and research,” she said. Pelosi made those remarks when she was trying to underscore the importance of “federally funded basic research that contributed to some of the technology that was ultimately integrated into the iPhone.”

Rep. Pelosi said she knew Jobs well and didn’t mean to disrespect his contributions to the world.  “Apple will admit that the core technologies of the iPhone came from federally-funded  innovations.”
