Mix: Google CEO, Super Bowl XLI, Cisco, iPhone gear

Doug Kass of The Street.com says Google CEO Eric Schmidt could be a temporary replacement for Apple CEO Steve Jobs “should the options-backdating issues intensify at legal levels.”

Apple’s iTunes Store has now posted the extended highlights package from Super Bowl XLI, as well as full coverage of the game. Both are priced at $1.99 each.

Signaling it has no plans to give up its claim to the iPhone trademark, Cisco Systems this week paid for a full-page ad in the New York Times to promote its iPhone.

The Joy of Tech online comic has posted a humorous take on future iPhone accessories, including the Newton Shell Case, Inflatable iPhone Booth, and iPhone Stress Pills.

Class act Cisco… Love the pro of ‘Retro look’.  Just what the public want I am sure!

Do not really see the issue.  iTV became Apple TV.  iPhone can become Apple Phone.  People do not care…they have not had opportunity to get used to a name and associate any value to the brand it holds.

So what if Jobs announced a name, the real proof comes in the summer when Apple have a phone in every 20th pocket, and Cisco have a trademark!

The only money Cisco are going to make out of this Trademark is if they sell the rights of the name to Apple.  Silly little people.

The Newton case is hysterical!  ...of course, I’m also a huge dork.

The Joy Of Tech cartoons are funny especially the ‘hope diamond’ Case with Security Guard. Keep family and friends away from you iPhone while you sleep.

The poll results here are funny as well.  The ‘iPhone iTrip’ & bank loan are spot on.  Some people already use their cell phones as if they are on the radio and everyone wants to listen to their conversation.

Am I the only one who sees this “Cisco ad” as likely the result of an agreement between Apple and Cisco? I mean, it promotes both the “iPhones”. Couldn’t this suggest that the two are closer to agreement?

OK, this might sound crazy, but since I didn’t record it,

Does anyone know if the Super Bowl video inculdes the half time show?

the Cisco thing is especially amusing because their “iPhone” doesn’t actually SAY iPhone anywhere on either the device or the package. not even a sticker. i bought one 3 weeks ago and was suprised to see NO mention of their “iPhone” moniker.

urbanslaughter, the image in that NY Post isn’t the ad Cisco took out.  It is just an illustration for the story.  The Cisco ad was just about their iPhone, and didn’t specifically say anything about the Apple stuff.

I’m pretty sure that someone actually invented one of those portable phone booths last year.
