Apple applies for trademark protection on gaming devices
Here. According to that piece, Apple’s applied for trademark protection on “toys, games and playthings, namely, hand-held units for playing electronic games; hand-held units for playing video games; stand alone video game machines; electronic games other than those adapted for use with television receivers only; LCD game machines; electronic educational game machines; toys, namely battery-powered computer games.”
It could mean nothing. It could mean that Apple’s about the enter the games trade. Which would be pretty much the funniest story of the century, even though we’re only in year eight.
