Mark Chandler, Cisco's SVP and General Counsel, has posted a blog entry on Apple's infringement of their iPhone trademark claiming that "this is not a suit against Apple’s innovation, their modern design, or their cool phone. It is not a suit about money or royalties. This is a suit about trademark infringement."

I may be eating a lot of crow about my prediction that the iPhone was a red herring (it was announced after all) but that doesn't mean that I have to like it.
SAN FRANCISCO -- I've posted 44 pictures from the Macworld Expo keynote address here this morning. Working on the captions now...
SAN FRANCISCO -- I'm inside Moscone West for the Macworld Expo 2007 keynote address and it's packed, Gnarls Barkley "Crazy" is on the sound system. It's probably one of the most highly anticipated Apple keynote addresses of all time, but so was the last one.
Jobs opened his keynote saying, "We are going to make history together today.
SAN FRANCISCO -- We just had a small keynote-eve gathering of some close friends at a nice diner at 4th and Mission to hypothesize about what we hoped Steve Jobs might announce at his Macworld Expo keynote address tomorrow.
SAN FRANCISCO -- I'm on record that I think that the iPhone is a red herring which is loosely translated as "something being a diversion or distraction from the original objective." I think that Apple could be using it as a decoy to keep us off the scent of whatever larger scheme they have cooked up for us tomorrow, be it iTV, iPod or iWhatever.
One of most interesting collaborations that could be announced at Macworld Expo is a partnership between Apple and Google.
Today was a travel day so please excuse the tardiness of this post. I just landed in Reno/Tahoe and checked in for a weekend of snowboarding before Expo. Anyway, the weekend before Macworld Expo in San Francisco is typically when details about Apple's planned announcements begin to leak and today is no exception.
