If Cisco kills this, $10 says that Apple switches to one of iComm, iFone, or iRing.

Heh. iRing.

iFone probably wouldn't be legal as thats pretty directly trying to confuse consumers. Cisco would get to file a second lawsuit against Apple for even more damages. That would be like me releasing an operating system called Windoze.
