Legal This make me a sad little facepalming unicorn. Apple has just slapped the open source home server project Amahi with a cease and desist letter about the project's use of the term 'app store' - stop using the term, or face Cupertino's army of lawyers. Note: Please help me find out what 'Mac App' is, a supposed Apple product from 1985 - the first citation of the term 'app' in the Oxford English Dictionary. Another note: Okay I should've guessed that publications from that time could still correct company's horrid camel case spelling without unleashing the wrath of fanboys - it's MacApp, not Mac App. Gra├žias, guys!

Lol, each time I refresh page a new name is set on their app store. A few funny ones too ;)

Apple is being ridiculous as always, I hope they'll suffer!

Thanks for pointing out the name changes. That's probably the best middle finger they could give Apple.
