Months after the company fought a tense legal battle with the FBI over iPhone security, the Democratic leader in the U.S. House of Representatives is questioning how much credit Apple should get for creating the iPhone. In comments this week, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said "federal research" — not Steve Jobs or Apple — invented the iPhone. What Pelosi seems to be saying was that federal funding and research played a key role in many of the underlying technologies within the iPhone, which is true. As just one example, the U.S. military developed GPS technology, which powers much of the location-based data that's fundamental to smartphones today. She also appears to mistakenly call LCD (liquid-crystal display) technology "LLD." However, her claim that Jobs and Apple merely designed and assembled the technologies, and that the federal research programs deserve credit for inventing the device, is already being compared to President Obama's "You didn't build that" speech in 2012.
