The Apple Tablet Will Be Called the "iGuide"... Maybe.... OK, Maybe Not.
I don't know about you but the name game for Apple's forthcoming tablet couldn't be any more interesting... or frustrating.
The big news today is the mounting evidence of Apple's sneaky establishment of various "shell companies" used to secure trademarks, domain names, and other digital properties that may ultimately be linked to the upcoming Apple tablet which many believe will be unveiled late next month.
iGuide Media, LLC is believed to be affiliated with Apple, at least according to multiple published reports, including one today courtsy of the Washington Post/Tech Crunch:
MacRumors bases its report on the filing for a US trademark for 'IGUIDE' by another Delaware-registered company called iGuide Media LLC, which can be linked to Cupertino by means of signatures on the documents coming from Apple's Senior Trademark Specialist, Regina Porter.
There's no indication that Apple owns any domain name that contains the term 'iguide'. The identity if iguide.com is shielded from public WHOIS records, but not by Mark Monitor, the brand protection firm Apple usually works with. The domain name iguide.net belongs to a company called iGuide Media.
Although less than a month remains from Apple's probable release of the tablet, the rumor mill and the name game won't end until Steve Jobs personally speaks the device's name. Until then, it's a safe bet that no one knows for sure what the tablet will be called - perhaps not even the folks at Apple who may be using discussions (such as these) to evaluate the best name possible for the tablet.

How about "iCouldcareless". I am sorry but i have been hearing so much crap about the tablet and the names that it does not matter to me anymore. It will be what it is at the time that it is. I think it will be a great product but as said earlier it is overhyped.If anything was usefull a thanks would be great!

Whatever it's going to be called, it's probably going to revolutionize the Tablet Industry.

But yeah, news of this device is annoying me. Who cares. When it gets here, then we can talk about it. When we know specs, great. When there is true rock hard evidence, share it. But rumors aren't news. They're rumors. Not headlines.

'Hey, there is this device that i have never seen before in my life and have absolutly no idea what it looks like/or does but because it's an apple, I WANT ONE' ... w/e... in my oppinion, unless this thing can shrink at the touch of a button, i have no reason to get it... so, no hype... lately there must not have been much "REAL" apple news... sad!
