Apple about to be pwned by - Apple!

Apple (computer company) are about to get fscked over by Apple (music company). Normally I would be on the side of whoever was fighting a record company - not this time as Apple (computers) have proved to be just as greedy as the record companies. Serves the greedy hippy arsemunching twats right for trying to rip us off.

I'm sure we've referred on here to Apple (computers) being sued by Apple (music) for using their trademarked name (erm... Apple) but I can't find it - it may have been in our long defunct commenting system. The settlement included Apple (computers) not entering the music business in any way, shape or form. We also muttered about iTunes clearly being an entry into the music business and it would only be a matter of time before Apple (music) got on the case. Well that time has arrived.

AFAIK the only profitable bit of Apple (computers) is the music side - iPods and iTunes. Take any settlements out of that and they could be looking at yet another huge loss. My heart bleeds. Parp!

Don't forget that Apple is also a religion.

Indeed, the Apple Fundamentalists are very scary people...

It could get worse if Apple gets wiped out by any settlement and Jobs starts a new computer company. They'll start comparing him to Jeebus being resurrected. :)

Jobs already left, formed NeXT, then returned to "resurrect" Apple!

mmChronic said...

If he manages it twice then he's much holier than Jeebus!

I suspect at this point, Apple would quote Monty Python, with MS getting in on the act - something like:

APPLE:
I'm not dead!
customer:
'Ere. He says he's not dead!
MICROSOFT:
Yes, he is.
APPLE:
I'm not!
CUSTOMER:
He isn't?
MICROSOFT:
Well, he will be soon. He's very ill.
APPLE:
I'm getting better!
MICROSOFT:
No, you're not. You'll be stone dead in a moment.

... so onOr something.
