Apple has finally admitted that British man Kane Kramer was the inventor of the technology that made Apple's iPod a reality. Kramer has maintained for 30 years that he invented the technology.

Kramer's invention was the ability to store a mere 3.5 minutes of music on a chip called the IXI. He made the breakthrough in 1979. Apple admitted Kramer was the inventor when it called him and asked that he testify in court pertaining to the suit between Apple and Burst.com.

Kramer says when he invented the technology in 1979 he couldn't afford to patent the invention. He says he is hoping Apple will pay him for his idea. I am betting that is wishful thinking to be paid for something the guy didn’t patent.
