    Eh, this is likely a nonevent. Integra is one of the smaller guys. Google and Integra will come to an "agreement," and the unwashed masses would know no better.

    Hard to have too much passion for that name anyway. They can buy if deemed worth it or simply intro a new model with a new name ..adding to the hundreds upon hundreds of model names out there already. Non-news to me.

    What’s a trade market? Did I miss the part of the article where Apple commented?

    But I hope Integra charges them a huge premium for the name. I would.

    If Cisco demanded that of Apple, all of you would be whining that it's unfair to Apple :rolleyes:

    So what you're saying is it's not OK when Google uses a name that is similar to another product's name, but it's OK when Apple blatantly steals another product's name?
