Microsoft eats little companies like this between meals, not even worth breakfast. They are dead meat.

Would be hilarious if they somehow forced MS to change its consoles name though.
Y-Box anyone?
As in Y the fark do we need yet another console.

Going out on a limb, remember something about this, but only vaguely.

But doesn''t trademarking law allow two or more items, companies, whatever to exist, as long as they are distinctly unique with few if any similar characteristics?

If that is true, then can''t Microsoft use the XBox brandname on the grounds that this company that is claiming to own that brand name is actually a game console?

I mean, how absurd is that, a company that is actually a gaming system, it''s just totall..... doh! gotta run, my playstation is trying to buy stock in AOL - Time Warner before Bush decides to use it for religious purposes now that Saint Isidore is going to be the patron saint(ess?) of the internet and programmers.
