    Apple... wants more pie...

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...ute-Apple.html

    A small café in Germany has been told that its red apple logo with the face of a child in it is forbidden fruit.

    The warning has been fired by U.S. computer giant Apple at a small café in Bonn called Apfelkind.

    The café’s owner, Christin Römer, has made a trademark application for her logo, which Apple has demanded she withdraws – but the electronics goliath has a battle on its hands, because Ms Romer is standing firm.
    sorry if it's already been posted..

    That doesnt look anything like the Apple logo.

    The two business are completely unrelated, don't think their lawsuit will hold any grounds.

    I almost beat my wife for buying a stupid apple nano thing. But joke aside this is getting too ridiculous. Why a multi billion company go and mess with a miniscule business? Never owned anything from them and never will.

    Interesting that this issue has made it into the worldwide media.

    Yeah, it's pretty bad. The logos look nothing alike and they are in a completely different market. Except Apple wants to begin selling iCoffees.

    I currently own a soon five year old MacBook and it will definitely be the last Apple device I own. I can't and won't support patent trolls. The Ultrabooks look better and better, even though their price is disappointing (on par with Apple's offerings).
    Notice any grammar or spelling mistakes? Feel free to correct me! Thanks

    actually it is not funny someone needs to tell apple that what they are trying to do is really stupid and in short term this may help their marketing by taking public attraction but at the end this will harm their marketing.

    She added: ‘The thing is, it was almost flattering to hear from Apple. I love Apple products – I love design and am not terribly technical. I organise my cafe with my iPhone and Apple laptop.’
    AAAAaaaarrrrrgghhhhh!

    Seriously, Apple must die already

    received a letter last month from the California-based firm telling her that it believed her customers would become confused between its world-famous logo and hers.

    I have no reason to ever buy a Apple system. They are simply retarded.
