Spot the difference - Apple v Apfelkind

24 October 2011

There’s nothing sweeter than seeing a massive global corporation coming down hard on a tiny organisation in a ruckus over a logo. No, not ‘sweeter’, what’s that other one? Ah yes, ‘shittier’.

And so we feel obliged to tell you about Apple’s threat to sue a small family-run café in Bonn, West Germany called Apfelkind (German for ‘apple child’). The gadget makers of America say that there could be confusion between themselves and Apfelkind though, and are demanding that they ‘cease and desist’.

Here – take a look for yourself. Chillingly similar isn’t it?

    I bought a Cox's Orange Pippin yesterday, and it won't connect to itunes. I want my money back. It was clearly sold as an apple.

    We've set our lawyers on SafeStyle. Bastards haven't got a licence to sell windows. We're also looking at Viagra sales companies as they sell stuff for small limp cocks.

    Be careful when you breathe fresh air so you don't violate Macbook Air's rights. Better get your oxygen bottle right now.
