While Apple has been making noises about how no one else can use the "App Store" name and even complaining to the Trademark board, it's finally gone legal, and has picked a big target. Apple is now suing Amazon.com for using the App Store name, claiming trademark violation. This seems pretty petty -- especially for two companies who have worked together on other things. For example, Apple has "licensed" the (admittedly ridiculous) patent for one-click buying. I wonder if Amazon can figure out a way to revoke that now...
