iPhone lawyers literally compare Apples with Pears in trademark war

Re: Dear Apple.

"With trademarks, companies have to defend them, as that is the law." yes defend them when there is confusion. If cant teal the difference between a pear and apple logo you are fucked. This is a map company and does not compete in the same market. Following your logic if I had a plumbing supply store called Apple, Apple would have to sue me or lose the rights that is not the case. if that was so then you would see apple sue applebee's which has an apple logo.

Now if I were to start a computer company called apple V anda apple logo similar to apple computers I would expect to get sued.

Depends on the state. When I was in California it was easy to find real Mexican food. I moved to Alabama and I can't find any thing that remotely looks Mexican. They serve greasy shit and called it Mexican food.

"Joseph Thomas took a job at the taxi-hailing app in 2016, turning down an offer from Apple in the process, and moved from Atlanta to San Francisco with his wife and two kids."

You turned down a job from Apple, moved across the country to work for a sketchy outfit. I'm not an apple fan boy but i'm will to bet the job at apple would of paid more and is more stable.

Sadly Uber does fill a void When I go out drinking, thre are lots of cabs to take me home from the bar. Now getting a cab from my house can take up to an hour were as uber is 5 minutes. Cab want to be were the can can get a quick fare so no cabs driving around housing. I've ran into issues were the cab did not show up.

Then there is San Francisco. were you have a 50 50 chance of get professional driver. But hey at least they dont take you the long way around. In fact they take you the fast way possible to get more fares. That means driving like they are on a race track and running red lights. w Worst cabbie was during pride. I should gotten out but hey I wanted to go to the next party. The Guy craned up the radio playing EDM me and my friends were sliding around. You would of thought we were in the movie bullit . We got out ofthe cab and walked a mile in heels.

Re: Grr.

Not so quick to blame the Judge. This was plea deal and the DA knocked it down to a minor charge. If he got a proper charge he would of done up to five years and then deported and barred from entering the US permanently.

For what these ovens cost there is no excuse. Lets Say it cost an extra $5 per oven. The type of person to but this oven would not care if you raised the the praise by $100. This is the same as a $35,000 car breaking because the manufacture wants to save a few pennies on bolts.

Three indicted over sex trafficking operation run on Backpage.com

kain preacher
Silver badge

Sorry it's sex trafficking. If it's forced then it also becomes sex trafficking. Both still can get you life. And if it's minors Extra charges. I know most people hear are against the death penalty but I do believe if some is found guilty of forcing some into the sex trade death should be an option.

Pro tip, In the US if you are a pimp dont take your hookers across lines. At that point it becomes federal crime. Human trafficking aka modern term for slavery and traffic slaves. That becomes a life.

Verizon's bogus bills tanked my credit score, claims sueball slinger

kain preacher

Re: Wow, deja vu

actually verizon can't do any thing as they sold it a collection agencies. in the US debt collectors buy the debt for pennies on the dollar and due any thing to collect. they do not verify the info or even if they have a the right to collect. They will do things like curse you out, degrade you and threaten you with jail time if you do not pay. They will do things like call you 50 times an hour. now we do have some federal protections. harassing or threatening actually disqualifies them from collecting the debt and you can sue them for up to $500. Now the problem ist he shit bags might not be in your home state or even in the country so enforcement can be hard.
