Legal There's a scene in American Beauty where Kevin Spacey masturbates in the shower, while his voice-over states: "This will be the highlight of my day. It's all downhill from here." That's how I feel right now. We just had Microsoft suing Barnes & Noble, which was already pretty low to begin with, but Apple just upped the ante by suing Amazon... Over the 'app store' trademark. For the love of god.

For me, when I think of "app store" all that springs to mind is a goto place for the apple related software. I'd be quite confused to see android or even wp7 apps there.

If that's what you're used to, but for example to me "app store" means a place where I can buy applications and games. Ie. "app store" means "application store", a generic term like e.g. "hammer" means, well, a hammer.

Every OS has applications and games and a store is a store so it feels really stupid to try to claim it is somehow Apple-only.
