Apple to rename Rendezvous

In the coming months, Apple will change the name of its Rendezvous networking technology to "," according to documents shown to AppleInsider. Last year, Tibco Software entered into a trademark dispute with Apple over its use of the Rendezvous name, alleging that the Apple technology, used in products such as Mac OS X and the iTunes Music Store, infringed on its exclusive rights to the Rendezvous name. In July 2004, the two companies agreed to end the dispute through a mutual out of court settlement. Sources close to the negotiations said that, as part of the deal, Apple agreed to phase out its use of the "Rendezvous" name in time.

    What about "Holla!"

    Too street? "Bonjour" is a little stuffy, non?

    OpenTalk?

    I thought at the time of the settlement, Apple announced that Rendezvous would become OpenTalk?

    How about...

    "Wazzup?"

    Oh, but then Budweiser would probably sue. And I'm sure Apple is eager to say au revoir to this whole trademark mess.

    Yes, that's a great name. Frelling Bonjour is dren, they gotta do better than that.
