• Apple vs. Woolworths in the Battle of the Fruit Shaped Logo

    woolies



    Yep, you read that right - Apple, the fruit company we all love, are taking Australian Woolworths, the company that sells actual fruit, to court, because their new styled W that looks like an apple, looks too much like Apple's apple and the fact that Woolworths slaps their logo on anything, could one day lead to a Woolworths branded computer. The Age has the full report.

    Apparently, less than 5% of these actual claims make it to court, so it could just be a nothing situation, but it's interesting none the less, as it involves a relatively large Australian company. (cheers to Donnie Darko on the forums for the heads up on this story)

    Thanks gentlemen, too bad the A$ is in a bit of a state but the fact that I have a bit of US$ in cash does not exactly help! I am familiar with the products

    I'm the guy who started that thread two years ago. In the end, I did end up with a working iPod mini with a 16GB CompactFlash card and a new battery.

    The Hawk,

    If I can find a battery that's going to be a satisfactory replacement then I would certainly take it apart to replace it. The $7.10

    At this point if you're comfortable pulling the iPod apart give it a bash anyway. The way I read that post is that that particular CF card wouldn't work

    No particular recommendation, but there seems to be plenty of options on eBay for five bucks or so, might as well grab one and see what happens for that
