The iPhone’s new name: “iPod” (?)

Because Cisco owns the product name for iPod, Steve Jobs has to either do some battling in court or settle things in a friendly manner and call his iPhone something else.

My brazened prediction? Sooner or later, Apple will just have one product line for portable media and integrate a phone component with it. Already, the […]

Apple iPhone: Breathtaking
