Apple has gone on the multi-colored plastic warpath, getting worldwide injunctions against Daewoo and E-Machines to keep them from selling their iMac lookalikes. I'm not certain how an injunction issued in a U.S. court has worldwide authority, but we'll overlook that for now. Check out this Wired article if you want the skinny.
Lest you think I am going to slam on Apple for vigorously defending their right to be the sole manufacturer of plastic jellybeans of computing technology, nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, I think Apple needs to go farther with this one. Strike next at Handspring, and make sure they stick to black Visor handhelds. Then go after Nintendo, for their new six-pack of colored N64's.
As a matter of fact, go after anything that looks remotely like an iMac. Why? Because frankly I've seen more fruit-colored plastic glued to transparent plastic in the last six months than I ever wanted to see in my entire life. I am so frickin' sick of everybody making every kind of product under the sun to look like an iMac. Just get over it.
Let's just hope that IBM doesn't get the idea of an injunction to keep anyone from making a utilitarian beige box.
