10 billion downloads in App Store

The App Store counter, who counts every download of an app, has now reached the 10 billion mark (and that during 2.5 years). The guy who has downloaded it has got a 10,000 US Dollar iTunes card as surprise.

Who wouldn't celebrate with Apple for this huge success? Right, Microsoft.

Microsoft want to prevent Apple to get exclusive rights for the name "App Store" as a brand. They say that the name "App Store" is too general and can't belong to one company (Apple), and the name would already be in everyone's common parlance. They wrote 500 pages as protest.

It is kind of ridiculous.

I mean, everyone calls an MP3 player an "iPod", regardless of the make/model.

I want to know how you can spend 500 pages saying "No, we don't think that you should have that name." That's longer than some novels.
