Legal "Apple and have ended their lawsuit over who has the right to use the 'app store' name, clearing the way for both companies to use it." The silliest lawsuit in the history of technology.

Totally agree. I hate the short form "app" for totally different reasons which I won't get into. But on the subject of ubiquity that you bring up, it's also pretty disturbingly misleading with, for example, job applications... it's just a poor term, one that clearly the marketing departments just stuck to. All because apparently they think the population can't handle much more than a three-letter word the amazing variety of a whopping two different, distinct letters.
