Microsoft doesn't want Apple to have a trademark on "App Store"

Microsoft does not want Apple to gain a trademark for the term "App Store" and is currently fighting to be able to use the term for its own mobile application store. They have recently asked the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office to refuse the trademark on the term "App Store" for Apple because they claim it is too generic of a name and they feel Apple doesn't have the right to lay claim to the term.

Any secondary meaning or fame Apple has in 'App Store' is de facto secondary meaning that cannot convert the generic term 'app store' into a protectable trademark. Apple cannot block competitors from using a generic name. 'App store' is generic and therefore in the public domain and free for all competitors to use.

TiPb on ABC 15 talking Verizon iPhone

Right before the Verizon iPhone announcement this morning Rene jumped on ABC 15 Arizona with Kirk Yuhnke to preview the event. Of course we all know how it turned out now but wouldn't it have been funny if he'd been spectacularly wrong and Verizon ended up announcing another Kin instead?!

Hot off the heels of the Verizon iPhone announcement comes a report that Verizon Wireless will soon be offering Apple's iPad with an embedded CDMA chip to better compete with AT&T. From Bloomberg:

Verizon will get an embedded chip in the iPad for use on its network, Francis Shammo, chief financial officer of Verizon Communications Inc., the parent of the wireless unit, said today in an interview in New York. IPad users currently need an extra device to connect to Verizon’s network.

Verizon iPhone running iOS 4.2.5

Verizon iPhone running iOS 4.2.5

We were fairly certain the Verizon iPhone 4 would require a new version of iOS, sporting a new CDMA radio stack, and it seems it will -- iOS 4.2.5 (8E128).

Current GSM iPhones are on iOS 4.2.1 but it's currently unknown if they'll also get a bump to iOS 4.2.5 when the Verizon iPhone ships on February 10.

In addition to the CDMA radio, iOS 4.2.5 on Verizon will support the new mobile hot spot feature announced today, and while there's no word on whether or not that will remain exclusive to Verizon, no other carrier has announced it yet either.
