    Naturally, it seems beyond premature to begin speculation ...

    Apple's request to stop Amazon from using the term "Appstore" has been denied by a federal judge.

    Common sense prevails.

    Judge Phyllis Hamilton filed an 18-page opinion with the U.S. District Court for Northern California denying Apple's preliminary injunction request, because Apple had not established a likelihood of confusion between the competing App Stores or Appstores if you are Amazon.

    Way back on October 8th, 2010, my colleague Wiley picked up on sources reporting from Europe that Spotify - the hugely popular online music service - was inching ever closer to finally launching in the US, a development that would put the streaming service in head-to-head competition with Apple's iTunes.

    Nine months later, this "imminent" arrival has finally taken place - or at least, it's forthcoming arrival ...

    According to Trademarkia Apple was granted a U.S. trademark last week for "280." Obviously, Apple can't trademark a number, imagine fit microsoft would have every time someone typed 360.

    But, as TechCrunch points out, a quick glance at the maps icon Apple uses for its iOS navigation app and everything makes sense. The icon shows Interstate 280 along with with pinpointing the exact location of Apple's ...

    From a business standpoint it just makes sense. That's the logic behind Citadel Securities analyst Shing Yin's estimate that the next-gen iPhone will call Sprint home before the end of 2011. With AT&T and Verizon now sharing the carrier stage in the US, Apple is likely profoundly interested in expanding to the nation's third-largest wireless provider.

    Sprint, which - like Verizon - runs ...
