Apple, Nike sued over Nike+iPod Sport Kit

Nike+iPod Kit lawsuit

Apple and Nike have been sued by a Colorado company accusing them of infringing a patent covering shoes that collect data on the wearer's activity in their Nike+iPod Sport Kit. File on Thursday by PhatRat Technology, the complaint was delivered to a Denver federal court, alleging that Apple and Nike are using its patented innovations without permission. PhatRat, which develops wireless devices that gauge a wearer's performance, asked for cash compensation and a court order blocking the use, Bloomberg reports. "PhatRat has been damaged by the infringing acts of Apple and Nike, and will continue to be damaged unless" they are stopped by the court, closely held PhatRat said. The $30 Nike+iPod Sport Kit, which debuted last July, features a sensor and receiver let the shoes communicate with an iPod over a radio frequency so runners can be apprised in realtime of their speed and pace. It is designed to work with special Nike shoes, but third-parties have developed adapters for most running shoes.

The new AirPort Utility software can control the new 802.11n-enabled base stations as well as older Apple-branded base stations and features a new wizard to easy setup, improved UI, better responsiveness, and more features for new devices.

[U] Cisco takes out full-page NYT iPhone ad

Cisco Anti-Apple Ad

Update with ad after the jump Cisco has delivered a full-page ad promoting its version of the iPhone, according to news from the New York Post. The ad, which appeared in the Thursday issue of the New York Times, heavily promoted the networking company's recent Linksys-branded iPhone in a conspicuous attempt to reinforce its belief that it holds the legal rights to the iPhone name.

The posting was unusually well-timed, appearing the same day as Apple and Cisco together extended time to respond to the latter's lawsuit over alleged trademark infringement. Apple has so far avoided extraordinary tactics, stating only that it thinks the Cisco suit "silly."
