Do these look similar to you?
According to Apple corp, th e one on the left may be too similar to the one on the right.
The other day Julia and I went to a coffee shop together to work on our stuff. When she opened her laptop I was shocked to see the Apple Logo on it! I thought she was still using the old hand me down laptop from grandpa on which I had installed Linux.
“Where did you get the Mac???” I said.
“What?” she looked at me quizically. Then a grin as she realized what I was talking about. “That apple thingie came with my iPod. I stuck it on this old clunker so I’d look cool in the coffee shop.”
So, that proves that at least some people recognize the Apple Logo and think it is cool
So, regarding the logo shown above:
WOOLWORTHS insists its new logo is a stylised W, …
Hahahahahaah!!!!! (oh, sorry, …. ok, back to the story)
…or a piece of fresh produce;
What? They don’t know? Produce? WTF?
Apple thinks it is an apple, and the California-based technology company wants to stop Australia’s largest retailer from using it.
Apple has mounted a legal challenge to prevent Woolworths from using the logo that now adorns its trucks, stores and products, arguing it is too close to its own.
That’s a big story for Australia, which is where this story comes from. The big story in the US, of course, is “why are there so many Woolworths in Australia? What’s up with that?”
