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
