The Day After

Democrats really have swept the House, and it looks like they’ve taken the Senate too, so they should be congratulated for not flubbing their chance to take power.  But what does the Democrats’ victory mean for the state of IP?  The honorable Mr. Patry looks at who will be the next chair of the IP subcommittee.

Perfect Pod Coffee

Filed under: Pods, trademark — nick @ 6:31 pm

There people go again using “pod” as some sort of generic term for personal portability enabling device.  This time it’s Perfect Pod, which “lets you create self-contained, single-use pods for use in virtually any coffee machine.”  Another Apple “pod” suit in the works?  Funny enough, this product seems to be the anti-Apple:

Sure there are many machines out there that use the single-use pods, but they’re all one-cup systems and vary the pods enough so you can only use the manufacturer’s own pods in the machine. And what if you are attached to a favorite brand of java, like Starbuck’s or Dunkin’ Donuts? Make it easy by making it in advance. Make it disposable. Make it in the perfect strength. Make as many cups as you want with one pod. Make it your favorite blend. Make it Perfect Pod.

Apple’s FairPlay certainly does make their pod less than perfect and I’m not sure who’s going to confuse coffee with digital music.
