    Any reason why you keep writing 'The Brits' ... ITV is a channel us 'Brits' watch but it is one of many... Doesn't mean you have make out the British public are against Apple...

    That's kind of evil to fire everyone and leave only the executives with money.

    Except ITV is not the name of a consumer electronic device, it's a Television Broadcaster/Channel. So they technically have no claim to the iTV name in a different industry. If Apple were to start offering content using the iTV brand and not just the HDTV product then maybe ITV could try to stop them from using iTV to sell content but still not the actual device name.

    Apple doesn't care who has trademarked a name or not. They didn't care that Cisco already owned the rights to iOS and LG owned the rights to iPhone. They just used the names and settled afterwards with wads of cash.

    I think if Apple was going to use iTV they would have done it with the first Gen Apple TV. I think they'll stick with Apple TV.

    Are you looking down on U.S. public school system?
    I am a product of U.S. public school system, went on to great University and got my masters in Biological Engineering.
    All my friends that graduated from public school system went to great university like Harvard, MIT, Caltech etc
    Last I check we do not use "King's English". I guess that is what private school students use to make themselves think they are superior to everyone else... Do you speak with fake British accent as well?
    Just because Apple now have money they can be pricks?

    No offense but American English sounds like a second language to you. Mostly because you don't use articles for some reason. Even I don't use perfect English. My second sentence is incomplete.

    then they will get sued and take it to court which will take months to years and by then its sold thousands to all the stupid fanboys with more money than sense.

    Apple are the stupidest and most stuck up company there ever is. They dont care about anybody but themselves and they dont even really care about their fans. If they did do you really thing their iDevices would be so locked down? IF they really cared what their fans thought it would be jailbreaked by a tickbox just like Android phones who actually care for its customers and listen to what they want.
    I don't post very often. But, you, are an ***. This site is dedicated to news about Apple. Your UserName, e-mail address, and ip should all be banned from modmyi. Do you really think anyone that is a member wants to read the crap you barf through your keyboard? I know I don't. modmyi would be a much more pleasant place if it weren't for straight up holes like yourself.

    He's not saying that NakedFaerie shouldn't have a right to hold or share his opinions, he's saying that this is not the place for them.
