Melbourne Apple Store plan

In brief: Plans for a glass-crowned Apple flagship store in Melbourne, Australia as part of a $200 million development project located in a one-time amusement center.... Apple is offering free hands-on workshops designed for children ages 6-13 and their families, educating participants about how to create songs as well as movies and photo albums; the workshops cover using GarageBand to make tunes, iMovie to create films, and iPhoto to create a photo album.... Apple's legal team has descended upon an Iowa downtown bar, ordering the establishment to change the name of its 'iPod Monday' weekly gathering where customers share music via their iPods.... IK Multimedia today announced that its "Crossgrade for All" policy is in effect, and that as of February 1st registered owners of at least one IK product are eligible to crossgrade to any other IK product at a discounted price.... Samsung has unveiled three new compact cameras with 7.1-, 8.1-, and 10.1-megapixel sensors to complement its existing line of cameras.

    Whats the message here?

    America, you've been bad, cease and desist.

    Australia, you've been good, here's a really cool apple store.

    America, you just sit there, be jealous, and think about what you've done.

    iPod mondays

    Bonehead move? Not sure how this dilutes or tarnishes Apple's trademark/product. Seems like a good thing for Apple, no? iPod Mondays all over the place.

    Why is this bad?

    Yeah a new store for the opposite side of the world... all this while Calgary is left ordering online. (Or using a crappy VAR, seriously I'd rather wait most of the time).

    re: iPod Mondays

    Well, I think that Apple is probably worried about the term "iPod" passing into generic usage. This is a complicated area of law trademark/copyright law, but I assume that Apple is doing this for a reason (other than flexing its legal muscle).

    BTW, I thought this article was kind of funny since I live in Des Moines (where this bar is) and I go there on occasion (although never for iPod Mondays)...
