Mix: SNL Steve, AAPL Q1 results, Windows Mobile, Fat fingers

“Apple CEO Steve Jobs” appeared on NBC’s Saturday Night Live over the weekend, showing off the new iPhone. Over 2 billion songs and 150 kabillion contacts, in your pocket.

Apple will announce its fiscal first quarter financial results on Wednesday, January 17th, at 5:00 p.m. ET. Along with its earnings, Apple will reveal how many iPods it sold during the busy holiday quarter.

Apple’s legal team is cracking down on websites and online forums that link to newly created software that turns the Windows Mobile operating system into an iPhone lookalike.

Concerned that his “working man hands” won’t work too well with the iPhone’s virtual keyboard, Jason Santa Maria has mocked up a photo of how the keyboard might look in landscape orientation.

“Appleā€™s legal team is cracking down on websites and online forums that link to newly created software that turns the Windows Mobile operating system into an iPhone lookalike.”

Wow.  That takes a lot of nerve given that they stole the name iPhone.  And yet the fanboys keep defending Apple, even when the company abuses it’s biggest fans.

The interface of the iPhone is one of the key distinguishing features, and I think Apple is right in defending that trademark. The impact of the iPhone would be much weaker if Windows Mobile users had the same interface for a few months.

There are a lot of unsettled issues over the rights to the name “iPhone,” and one lawsuit does *not* affect another. Microsoft was certainly protecting it’s copyrights and trademarks at the same time it was defending itself from infringing on Apple’s. Most large intellectual property-based companies will find themselves in similar situations. Apple included.

Wow…Now I remember why I haven’t watched SNL in 15 years….that skit was trite and abyssmally bad.  That guy didn’t even come close to even beginning to try to imitate Steve Jobs.  I hope that’s not the best SNL has to offer.

Bloggers are just messengers. As the old saying goes, “Do not shoot the messenger.” I say, “Shoot the perpetrator.” :D

Apple’s to late stopping the WM5 theme from making the rounds. They’re going to have to stop the torrent services and P2P now. (And my HTC Wizard looks nice in this theme.)
