1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Apple Forces Amazon To Stop App Submissions In Germany

    [​IMG]
    Ever since Amazon launched the Amazon Appstore, Apple has been flinging lawsuits like it’s their job. And while they haven’t swayed the US judge to agree with them (and we don’t think they will), it appears there’s enough pressure in Germany that Amazon has stopped allowing developers to submit applications. While it is not clear when Amazon will allow them to submit apps again, Amazon has gone on the record expressing their distaste for this Apple lawsuit.
    We have been forced to impose this restriction due to a legal action filed by Apple in Germany seeking to prevent us from using the term “appstore.” We believe Apple’s claim is without merit and are actively contesting it.
    Apple’s new stance of suing everything that competes has officially bared fruits overseas. It will be interesting to see if other countries that Amazon sells in will follow with Germany’s decision or side with Amazon on this one. The good news for Amazon is that the United States version of Apple v Amazon won’t happen for another year or so. If the term “app” isn’t considered generic by then (since it somehow isn’t now) I’ll eat my sock.

    I'm in IT and the word app was around way before the iPhone. App is simply short for application, nothing more and nothing less so this whole thing is a big joke to me. Maybe the guys on "Pawn Stars" can start suing all the local shops that call themselves "Pawn Shop" since no one used the word Pawn in the past.
