Apple iPhone won't even get out of the starting blocks

Whoops. The iPhone. Not by Apple.

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.

  1. A royalty deal of some sort would solve the problem. It’s not like Apple haven’t got the money.

    Too bad iPhone is a piece of junk – you have to be really, really shallow to buy a device just because it has a touch screen.
