    But the article has some good stuff on (American) English usage as well and even refers to "The American Dialect Society, a leading group of U.S. linguists".

    Indeed, copyright sucks.

    If anything ever needed a serious overhaul it is copyright law.

    Which won't happen because too much control and money potential would be lost. By the way, nobody can claim the name "app store". It's not a trademarked name. If you want to fling lawsuits at people, you have to put your name on it, not just pout that "I said it first!". If they want to try it, they'll have to go after more than just Amazon. Heck, even the United States Army is about to release a mobile app store for their people. Steve Jobs needs to quit thinking the sun doesn't rise until he wakes up. His genius has been long overshadowed by his dictator attitude.
