Red apple x5

Or

Green apple x5


I decided to go with the red iPhone 5, they said it would be delivered tomorrow and I could even choose a time convenient to me! Wish me luck it should be arriving at 10am! Surely I'll be the first person to get it!

Great... now Apple will use your statements in their court hearing as proof of confusion to a customer.. tongue.gif

Just another reason added onto the 10 pages chock full of reasons I will never buy nor own an Apple product.

Apple is a mean bully. They will attack anyone they think they can get away with attacking.

Anyone who tries and defend this ludicrous action is surely an Apple Zombie.


In tribute to "Breaking Bad", I am just waiting until Apple's cancer returns and kills it. I actually believe that Apple will be the downfall of itself. It's going to get so much negative PR that eventually its Zombies will die.

Next step?
Sue all polish domain holders that end with -a.pl ? bet there are a few thousands.
Sue all software companies as they keep advertising and selling their "apple-e-cations" in desperate acts of stealing Apple's publicity and trade mark (vocally)...
All the services and banks that name us "apple-e-cants" (no pun intended - vocally that is)...
I can keep going...

If Apple was not a US company, the congress would be already talking violating a couple of NATO and UN treaties and invade its dictatorship rear-end. Oh, wait... (pun intended).
In a few months of similar OCN news, I will be thinking that the bitten apple is a swastika equivalent, and Jobs left the strategic guide "mein kampf" for his successors to rule with...

They have to protect their trademark, which is Apple/Apple Corp/Apple Inc.

A.pl is not an Apple trademark. It does not belong to them. It does not create buyer confusion. They are not in similar markets. A.pl is not using the name to lead people to believe that they are Apple.

Apple is a bully, enough said.


Exactly one sells technology and another sells foodstuffs. I dont think anyone will go to a.pl and confuse buying fruit as to an iphone.

Almost every major company does this but Apple is treated like a celebrity so the media coverage is always on them in the most sensationalist way possible and people love it thumb.gif

Don't disrespect the svatiska, it is a Bhuddist symbol of peace.

OT: You guys seem to forget about another dispute.
Another link to the same story: http://apple.slashdot.org/story/11/11/03/2014255/apple-threatens-bistro-over-appleaday-name. The bistro promised they wouldn't sell computers, but apparently Apple had a lawsuit against the Beatle's studio and Apple (APPL) promised they wouldn't sell music. I suppose this is why Apple has to go on a rampage, they know they wouldn't keep their promise so they won't take anyone's word that nobody will compete against them.
