• 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)

    My point of argument is that people who like no internal drives already have two options, the Air and the Retina pro, and those who like internal drives

    Each to his own I guess. You like carrying around an external drive, who am I to argue.
