The Suing Business continues..

Its been just a day since the so called next generation, out of the world (read universe) -- iPhones have hogged the limelight and Stevie Jobs probably might still be wondering as to whether OS X would finally achieve what Mac couldn't.. and bang -- its Cisco Systems, this time who have filed a lawsuit against Apple for infringing its iPhone trademark. Apparently, Cisco obtained the iPhone trademark in the year 2000 after it acquired a company called Infogear, which previously owned the mark and sold iPhone products for several years. Last heard, Cisco is seeking injunctive relief to prevent Apple from copying Cisco's iPhone trademark, the company said. 

Com'on.. so is the legacy of Jobs and Co. naming their products as i-xyz gonna discontinue, or probably the 'xyz' might have to be replaced with another zingo term. The question is, does it matter? The product looks to be cool, and all we can hope is that comes to Asia before next year.
