Apple want to copyright the word ‘pod’

Okay, so it’s in connection with technology – they’re trying to stop other companies coasting on the success of the iPod – but how far will this go? Will we one day be unable to use the collective noun for dolphins? Will HAL be unable to open the pod bay doors? Heck, the legal fight could get nasty – it could even affect how we see vegetables. After all, they come in pods, and they couldn’t possibly fight Apple in court. I guess what I’m saying is…

…Give peas a chance.

Sorry.
