Apple iPhone won't even get out of the starting blocks
Apple said yesterday it was talking to Cisco Systems about the fact they already have a product (right) called the iPhone. They were apparently near to signing an agreement about the trademark which would make it alright.
Not any more…!
From the Cisco press release:
“They should not be using our trademark without our permission. Today’s iPhone is not tomorrow’s iPhone. The potential for convergence of the home phone, cell phone, work phone and PC is limitless, which is why it is so important for us to protect our brand.”
All together now…
“Egg on your face, egg on your face…”
Steve Jobs. You’re a very silly boy.
