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!

So you've all been using the term Apps since the dawn of time. Which brings me to my next point. DIBS on "Grocery Store" Yeah baby! mine.

Don't hate the player, hate the game.

Mexicali100,

"Don't hate the player, hate the game."

I know what you're saying, but can we hate other players when they get special favors and are not bound to the same rules as the rest of us?

Apple are being bullies. Sure we can turn the other way every time it happens, but it's incredibly hard to deny.
