是吧。
不知道要說什麼,大家已經把所有的話都說完了。

歐陽峰:不知道為什麼,我常常做同一個夢。沒多久,我就離開了這個地方。那天,黃曆上寫著:驛馬動,火迫金行,大利西方。

今天風大,想到泰晤士河邊走走,不知怎麼突然想起西毒張國榮和他的黃曆。南風起,利遠行,泰晤士河洗刷不去的舊恨新愁,要離開到哪裡才能算一走了之。

我稍後坐在咖啡店裡費力聽著聲音細的像蚊子的日本同學說她的流離。原來大家都在離開,原來大家都對未知有所追求。如果像歐陽鋒張國榮(這點很重要一定要強調)在沙漠中繼看盡百態,那離開的時候為什麼要傷心,而為什麼要因為傷心才離開。

yes, iPhone. 

Apparently "iPhone" has been a registered trademark owned by Cisco.  The negotiation of sharing the trademark between Cisco and Apple was still going, but Apply launched iPhone anyway despite the potential lawsuit. Why?

There was absolutely going to be a lawsuit against Apple over the trademark iPhone (and that's what Cisco did on Wednesday), giving the fact of infringement and that Apple is a rich and wellkown corporation (just like Cisco itself) therefore very worth suing.   

I don't know if Cisco had known that Apple was going to launch before they reached an agreement on the trademark.  In either way, both the launch and the lawsuit were highly strategic.  It's a game about marketing share gaining and profit making. 

How many people knew about Cisco's iPhone before yesterday? I didn't, and I was so fascinated by the touch pad and auto-sensing things of Apple's iPhone (yeah I want one too).  Whoever talks to me about "iPhone" after the launch, I will link it to Apple's new product without blinking.  Apple of course knew about this and had full confidence that they will be the name owner that recognized and accepted by ordinary consumers.   

Lawsuits, even motions for injunction relief, take time to come to a result.  By the time there's anything comes out of the lawsuit, Apple will already have gained its reputation on this fancy innovative little gadget, and the trademark iPhone will be registered in people's heads. 

What is Cisco thinking?  I think they are hoping to reopen the negotiation and have a (much) better deal with Apple.  The infringement of trademark is an obvious fact, Cisco will probably win with this lawsuit.  Apple definitely knows about that they're being bully and the probability of losing the case.  With a good negotiation team, Cisco may very well get more out of Apple's pocket while there's a lawsuit going on on the side. 

Of course all of those above is just in my little knowledge-limited head.  We will see how these two big players play.  At the same time, can anyone give me an iPhone? maybe for my birthday?  Have you seen how it flips through album images when choosing a song???

今兒坐公車到中國城買菜(乾香菇一包三磅八,你直接搶我會不會比較快?),完了信步在Soho晃晃,不知不覺又晃回惡名昭彰的Oxford Street (我在這購物街上花了好多錢阿),隨著人潮逐漸增多我也沒心情跟人家擠,上了公車回家,在車起步兩秒後竟然發現Oxford Street 路邊有一家熟悉的Beard Papa!真是他鄉遇故知,我在紐約每次去NYU附近一定要來上兩個Beard Papa的泡芙,每天的口味都不一樣,最喜歡綠茶口味又香又滑不甜膩,可惜每次去那都是週末約吃飯之類,週末好像只有草莓口味,不過也是夠幸福的了。
 
上網查了一下赫然發現台灣一個只賣40台幣,真便宜,在台灣的人快去SOGO買來吃吧,紐約一個美金2塊半,倫敦大概又要貴一倍..
 
就是這個草莓!! 好幸福阿 (圖是網路隨便抓的)
