I've heard that floating around the Apple blogosphere too, David, but I've yet to see Phil's name on a patent verifying that. That's not to say that he wasn't involved in the process between marketing and the engineering teams. But I'm not aware of anything official on that.

For interest sake, a link below to Wikipedia points to a UK company who sued Apple about the clickwheel way back in 2005:


There's no doubt Apple has patents on the clickwheel as it pertained to the iPod. How this will all play out over time is unknown at present.

I thought Phil Schiller designed the Clickwheel. Yes, no?
