Apple boss Tim Cook is pretty sure he spotted an iPhone in a 350 year old painting while visiting the Rijksmuseum with former current Dutch Startup Ambassador Neelie Kroes on Monday, the two said at the Startup Fest in Amsterdam on Tuesday, CNBC reports.

"I always thought I knew when the iPhone was invented, but now I'm not so sure anymore", Cook said at the event.

The painting in question is titled Man Hands a Letter to a Woman in a Hall. It was painted by Dutch painter Pieter de Hooch in 1670, though Cook seemed to think it was a Rembrandt painting. The letter in the painting kind of look like an iPhone with some imagination.
