The Real IPad

I visited customer in Vancouver yesterday. While working with them I overheard the conversation about few guys there working on "iPad integration"...

Knowing couple of guys there being an Apple geeks wasn't that surprising at all... Having piece of software working on Apple's latest gadget is cool.

To my large surprise - they were doing integration with "the real thing" MagTek IPad card reader device.

I'm wonering now if and how Apple and MagTek would settle "IPad" trademark dispute.

one is IPad and the other is iPad that is enough difference to keep a lawsuit at bay.

I used to develop software for an IPAD made by either Toshiba or Samsung (I forget which) back around the turn of the century. Very much like the device pictured above. It ran Windows CE 2.1 and 3.0.
