One bit of news that I thought deserves some attention is that Apple has sent a cease and desist letter regarding the open source Amahi’s use of the term “app store” in an attempt to vigorously defend what Apple believes is its trademark. Aside from what I believe (albeit as someone with a tech background and a Juris Doctor although I have never and do not currently practice law) on how generic the term “app store” has become, I do want to take this opportunity to highlight that Amahi needs help in naming its (App)lication Store for the future.
