Cisco peed on Steve Jobs' running shoes late Wednesday when it up and sued
Apple for infringing on its iPhone trademark a day after Jobs announced the
June arrival of a radical new eponymous widget at MacWorld in San Francisco
that the New York Times claims is still a prototype.
Jobs' reputedly "game-changing" announcement unleashed an avalanche of
iPhone-smitten press, pushed Apple shares, albeit briefly, to an all-time
high of close to $98, sent the Blackberry running for a bomb shelter,
overshadowed the whole rival Consumer Electronics Show and stirred Cisco's
lawyers into action.
Evidently something went radically wrong with the "repeatedly" Apple-sought
negotiations that the pair has reportedly been in for years - at least three

In a missive to the world Wednesday Apple CEO Steve Jobs said that the
company was working on an SDK that will let third-party applications on the
iPhone, ending that particular kafuffle.
It will take until February to organize it, he said, because it's supposed to
keep viruses, malware and privacy attacks at bay.
He suggested Apple may follow Nokia's example of insisting on digital
signatures that can be traced back to a known developer.
"While this makes such a phone less than 'totally open,'" he said, "we

The AppSnapp 'jailbreak' application, released web-wide on Sunday, seems to
have struck a chord with iPhone and iPod Touch owners. Claiming 'No hacking

The AppSnapp Jailbreak works as follows, according to its site:
