That, if anything, is enough for anyone to think twice about supporting Apple. I'm pretty sure NYC was The Big Apple long before Apple existed.
Oh, and they won (Apple).

They also sued Apple Records (which was probably playing on their turntable in the form of a beetles album when they were dreaming up the lisa smoking bong hits...).

Apple sued microsoft for the look and feel of windows until PARC stepped in and claimed original work.

Same with the mouse. Apple claimed they invented it until the real inventor stepped in showing his original design from 1963.

This type of behavior is why I will not support them at all. Ever.
