Divine Fiat on Monday announced Grunge, a new alternative Keynote presentation theme for Apple's presentation software.

Dark lines radiate from the center of almost every slide, and the set includes 40 master slides, providing a wide array of options. Divine Fiat is currently selling Grunge for $30, and it is available from the company's website.
Divine Fiat has released Keynote X, the company's latest theme for Apple's Keynote presentation software. Inspired by Apple's release of Mac OS X Leopard, Keynote X focuses on the arrival of the future. The new theme features seven slides of extras, resizable media placeholders, and a fading overlay. Keynote X is priced at $26, and requires Keynote 4.0 or later with the Helvetica Neue font.
Divine Fiat recently unveiled a new Keynote theme called Keynote TV, styled after the graphical user interface used by the Apple TV. The theme consists of a centered spotlight on a black field and relies heavily on reflections to provide its look. Divine Fiat says the theme is good for any presentation, but is especially effective when used for displaying art and photography, or for sales and marketing teams to demonstrate new product to clients. Keynote TV is currently available for $30, and requires Keynote v4.0, part of iLife '08.

Apple loses iPhone brand exclusivity in China
Apple has lost its exclusive rights to the 'iPhone' brand in China, the Beijing Municipal High People's Court has ruled. According to Quartz, Chinese company Xintong Tiandi is now free to continue selling its non-smartphone "IPHONE" branded products, which include smartphone cases, among other leather goods. The Chinese court ruled that Xintong Tiandi, which registered the "IPHONE" trademark in 2007, could continue to use the trademark because Apple did not start selling the iPhone in China until 2009. Apple also could not prove that Xintong Tiandi's ongoing use of the trademark would cause Apple material harm. The latest ruling by the Chinese government follows its recent decision to shut down the iTunes Movies and iBooks Store. http://bit.ly/1SNhRmB
