'Apple really, really, really wants exclusive rights to the word “Pod,” in names for tech products, the company has argued in an 873-page legal brief filed earlier this week.
Steve Jobs & Co submitted the voluminous document in a dispute with Sector Labs, a startup that's developing a projector called the Video Pod, Wired.com reported. The Reg has been unable to confirm this because the filing (PDF, we're told) was evidently more than the Patent and Trademark Office website could bear.

Apple is reportedly arguing that a video projector with the word “Pod” in its name would cause confusion with its own iPod products. Apple has a long history of attacking tech companies that use the name, going after MyPodder, TightPod, PodShow and Podium. And, of course, one can't forget the company's threats against the iPood, a small spade used by Aussie campers to bury their shit. But according to Wired.com, Sector Labs is the only outfit to take Apple on.'

I think Hannah-Barbara/Thunderbirds might have greater pull with regards "intellectual" rights, than Greenpeace.

What makes me guffaw with irony is the fact that all the commie pinko leftie sandal wearing tofu munching guardian reading bearded veggie lefties were all buying apple because that nasty baby eating capitalist Bill Gates was stifling competition in the name of profits and Steve Jobs was a much more socially aware individual who cared for for people and wouldn't do such a thing.

So it seem that Bill and Steve are like two peas in a pod!
