Apple Claiming The Term "Pod"

Apple Computers is laying legal claim to the term "pod," used in words like "podcast." Here are some other items Apple is trying to claim as its own:

  • Human silhouettes
  • Several thousand Chinese children
  • Thinking differently
  • The last slice of pizza
  • The term "tunes"
  • Any Granny Smith with a bite taken out of it
  • The concept of sharing
  • The pronoun "I"; Effective immediately Apple will collect royalties from anyone referring to oneself in this manner
