Regarding My Previous Commentary on the Use of the ‘iPhone’ Brand Name

Me, last month, in the wake of the Linksys “iPhone” announcement:

Did people really think that Apple, if — and it’s still an “if” — they produce a cell phone, was going to call it “iPhone”? The fact that clearly belongs to someone else was a strong hint that they weren’t.

At least I wasn’t alone.

And, amazingly to me, still points to a junky page from “The Internet Phone Company”. And I still haven’t heard any definitive answer regarding how Apple plans to use this name if Linksys claims the trademark and is using it for their own product.
