Legal "Apple and Amazon.com have ended their lawsuit over who has the right to use the 'app store' name, clearing the way for both companies to use it." The silliest lawsuit in the history of technology.

"The silliest lawsuit in the history of technology"

Care to explain how trying to protect a trademark (as Amazon would protect its 1-Click trademark) is silly? And I don't even ask how it could be the silliest: hyperbole doesn't make your argument stronger, especially as you don't have any argument.

If you even have to ask, then it's really kind of pointless to argue. "App" = Application. "Store" = self-explanatory (consult an English dictionary if necessary--don't worry, any printed within the last several centuries will probably do). Approximate reading from Obviousness Scale when used in the context of a "store" (digital or otherwise) that sells "applications" or "apps" for short: 100%.
