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.

Maybe I should start a naming scheme with a upperletter R suffix...

...or uppercase K prefix, oh that's already been done

Ah yes.. it's confusing and conveluted when KDE bases a naming convention around it's overall product suite. but when Apple develops a naming convention not related to it's company name and primary Mac brand, it's magic and revolutionary.

But then, I've found the people who get hung up over the name rather than the actual merits of the thing don't usually have anything of substance to offer beyond the superficial title.
