In other news, Microsoft has filed a summary judgment in an attempt to block Apple’s filed trademark on the phrase “App Store.” The judgment argues that the app store has become a term similar to the grocery store or shoe shop. If Apple were to trademark the phrase they could sue anyone using the generic term. And finally, The Computer History Museum is opening a $19 million exhibit titled “Revolution: The First 2000 Years of Computing.” The exhibit took six years to develop and will feature items ranging from the abacus to the Internet. With over 40 interactive setups and an oral history program, the new exhibit will be a site worth visiting.
