It goes without saying that Apple’s CEO wants to see iPhones everywhere he looks, but for some reason, it looks like he has already started picturing the device in places where it’s impossible for it to be.
Case a point, a 1670 picture which he recently spotted at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, which he visited together with former European Commissioner for Digital Agenda, Neelie Kroes, during his trip to the Netherlands.
Come quick, there’s an iPhone in this Rembrandt
Asputs it, the two were looking at the paintings when Tim Cook discovered something stunning.
“At one point 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…” Neelie Kroes is quoting as saying.
“I always thought I knew when the iPhone was invented, but now I’m not so sure anymore,” Tim Cook continued.
So basically, Tim Cook claimed he spotted an iPhone in a Rembrandt painting made in 1670, which although is impossible, actually makes some sense when looking at it.
But for what it’s worth, the painting which Tim Cook isn’t made by Rembrandt, but by Pieter de Hooch, and that’s not an iPhone, but a letter. If you have any doubts, the name of the painting says it all. Just Google “” and you’ll get it.
Truth be told, that letter does look a lot like a letter, but here’s something that’s not exactly something to be proud of. Remember? He kind of did it again with this painting, as he took a shot of the “Rembrandt” to show the audience at the Amsterdam event, but little could be observed in it because it was quite blurry. Also shot with an iPhone and also taken by Tim Cook.
