Fujitsu Says it Owns Rights to 'iPad' Name, Not Apple

Apple's iPad is barely a day old, and it's already facing legal troubles. Not terribly surprising, as "iPad" is hardly original - and Apple has a history of stealing names that are registered trademarks of other companies.

Japanese electronics company Fujitsu built a handheld computing device in 2002 - complete with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and VoIP support - called the iPad. The Fujitsu iPad features a 3.5-inch color touch screen and an Intel chip.

Good, iPad sounds stupid anyway. Apple needs to change it ASAP.

iPhone...they just don't give a sh1t. Any other company wouldn't have the ballz to launch with a name already trademarked but Stevo does what he wants.
