"Stop, reverse.

Cisco trademark is 2000, first iMac is 1998 (iMovie is 1999, iPod and iTunes are 2001, iPhoto 2002 -- thanks, Wikipedia) and Cisco's iPhone came out a few months ago, tops, so Apple could easily make a strong case that iThings are their brand."

Actually Infogear introduced the iPhone in 1997 and Cisco bought them out in 2000 acquiring the TM.
