Had this sent to me today. 

Basically Apple have sent a cease and desist notice to a Developer Support Community to stop them from referring to their guide for places you can buy mobile apps as an "APP STORE GUIDE" because some fucking moron in the Trademark office let them Trade Mark "App Store" and their idiot lawyers are following up on it.

Apparently you have to refer to places where you can download mobile apps, as Mobile Application Download Services or some stuff.

On the heels of:
  • Putting app functionality into the core OS and then BLOCKING those apps on the store
  • Trying to charge a percentage of content prices as part of the App Store Terms and Conditions
  • Rejecting apps because they include a feature which they then provide themselves
Seriously, this has gone far enough.

I think it's an Android phone for me next or, gasp, a Windows Phone.
