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. GraƧias, guys!

30 seconds of Googling finds http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?MacApp, as well as an article in InfoWorld (http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=wFAEAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA59&lpg=PA59&dq...).
