Cisco Takes A Bite Into Apple

It's days like this one when you are glad that you don't have stock in Apple. After this lawsuit was announced today, Apple stock fell in after-hours trading. Oops. You would think Apple would cover it's backside before taking such a risky plunge as introducing a phone with a name that they know is already copyright-protected. Apple needs to get over thinking that because they're Apple and rule the technology world, they don't rule the real world. Copyright names means that they are legally protected. As in, no one else is allowed to use it.

Incidentally, Cisco* shares were up today. Now I'm thinking that stock in Cisco wouldn't be so bad right now...
(Actually, it all makes me grateful that I don't dabble in the stock market)


and yes, the title is bad, but I'm too tired to change it. :-)

I wondered how long until people began to really examine the iphone's pro's and cons, of which there would be some because not even Apple gets everything right.

Anyway, I'm not waiting for the pricey iphone. I need something now which is reasonable and practical. So my new Motorola phone should arrive on Thursday. :-)

oops, the first sentence was incomplete. It should have said:

I wondered how long until people began to really examine the iphone's pro's and cons, both of which there would be plenty because not even Apple gets everything right.
