    Thanks Steve 

    From the Steve Jobs and Bill Gates talk together (must watch video):

    You and I have memories
    Longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

    From the Beatles song – Two of us.

    Incidentally, I was at Bercos today. Reminded me of an afternoon.

    Cisco blogs about iPhone!! 

    Cisco has gone public with details of the iPhone deal with Apple Inc and seems to have made a good point for itself. This information comes directly from Mark Chandler, Cisco’s SVP and General Counsel. Also this comes on a coporate blog of Cisco which goes a long way to show the power blogging has in today’s world and how companies use it to manage its public relations. The post has excited a lot of bloggers and has won Cisco brownie points with them. Also if you read the post, it does blame Apple, but very subtly and in a corporate fashion, not a big deal coming from a senior counsel.

    Also during negotiations with a certain vendor a few days ago the sales personnel there directed me to their corporate website for more information on their product. Way to go!! How I wish some people would listen.

    I did some searching on this tussel myself this morning and summarised below are my findings.

    The interesting thing here is that whereas Cisco (through acquisition of InfoGear) holds the trademark for “computer hardware and software for providing integrated telephone communication with computerized global information networks” (S.No. 75076573), Apple (through Ocean Telecom Services) holds the trademark for “handheld and mobile digital electronic devices…” and “hand-held unit for playing electronic games” (S.No. 77007808).

    If you actually check out the description the Apple trademark is more specific to hand held mobile devices and it is not difficult to see why Apple is not too concerned about trademark infringement.

    APPLE vs RIM vs Palm 

    The graph below from Google Finance actually does say it all about the impact (just the announcement of) iPhone has had on the traditional players in the domain!! I can’t want to see how these players bounce back and how hard Apple comes after them.


    Also interesting to see will be how Apple will name the product iPhone, which has been trademarked by CISCO.

    One thing is for sure, the customer is gonna be the king in the end with prices tumbling and improved services.

      As for being fast, I am an Apple tech fan and despite being a biologist I am quite interested in computers and tech (including programming).

    No iPod for me! 

    iphonelockscreen20070109.jpgI have given up all ideas of buying an iPod or a funky new phone. No Sir. Steve Jobs has done it again and with style. Apple stocks went north and RIM (Blackberry) and Palm (Treo) went south.

    The biggest vaporware of recent years has come to life at MacWorld 2007 yesterday and I am all over it. I am gonna wait for the swanky new iPhone, now that they have finally launched it.

    The specs are as follows:

    • 3.5-inch touch-screen
    • 11.6mm thick
    • 2MP camera
    • Proximity Sensor
    • Accelerometer
    • Ambient light sensors
    • Quad-band GSM/EDGE + WiFi
    • Bluetooth 2.0
    • Battery life of 16 hours for audio and 5 hours for actual phone use.

    So all you tech lovers brace on and wait for the next revolution. Though I will have to sadly wait for the thing to be launched in India and to be supported by some carrier (which I hope is Airtel), I am gonna wait. It is being launched in the US in June ’07. I hope it comes to India by June ’08. Till then my Nokia phone should work.
