Apple "Apple could face disruption to its iPad sales in China after a court rejected its claim to own the iPad trademark in the country and a rival sought to halt sales of the tablet device in two Chinese cities. The developments are the latest in a long-running dispute between Apple and Proview Technology (Shenzhen), a struggling Taiwanese-owned company that registered trademarks for the name IPAD in many countries long before Apple conceived its smash hit tablet computer." Apple is clearly copying from this innovative Chinese company. If Apple fanatics are actually consistent (*), they would condemn Apple for this clear case of theft.

Origins of 'I'

I was an "eBusiness Manager" (my actual title) back when the 'i' first appeared. At the time, it was understood to imply "Internet". This was around 2000 and "Internet" was still a big deal. Not that "2.0" and "Cloud" are really any different of course.
