This guy is suing Apple because he claims he invented the iPhone in 1992

Thomas S Ross is an ambitious man. 

The Florida-based tinkerer is suing Apple - one of the largest and most powerful companies in the world - for £7.5 billion. Because he claims that the iPhone, iPad, and iPod all infringe on an "Electronic Reading Device" he designed back in 1992.

Seriously.
