Holy crap! Please tell me Apple knew this and figured the ramifications of the iPod NANO out!

Wow! That's a shocker. Not sure what impact there will be from that. I would assume none.

That's a little convenient. Microsoft can buy anybody 20 times over, but you can bet they hate going to court -- and it doesn't keep their arses out of court, either.

McHugh would know that it would be the end of him to try a direct attack on the iPod. Apple could squish the Nomads.

Well ... Creative doesn't have to worry about customers confusing this item with Apple's newest addition ...

Creative is even further behind now.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think you can patent a word like "Nano" can you? Wouldn't that be like patenting the word "Small"?

Well, this event would seem to correct you

Although... I don't know where things are at with this Apple Corp vs Apple Computer lawsuit. Anybody know if it is still in process? Has a verdict been reached?? I've not heard much about it in quite a while.
