  4. what a load crap:lol:lol you wouldnt last 2 seconds in the judicial system my friend now would you.:p what about apple sueing woolworths cos they reckon the logo is to close to the apple logo:laugh: http://images.theage.com.au/2009/10/05/770057/woolies3-420x0.jpg http://www.theage.com.au/business/apple-bites-over-woolworths-logo-20091005-ghzr.html WOOLWORTHS insists its new logo is a stylised ''W'' or a piece of fresh produce. Apple thinks it is an apple, and the California-based technology company wants to stop Australia's largest retailer from using it.Apple has mounted a legal challenge to prevent Woolworths from using the logo, arguing it is too close to its own.Apple will have to convince IP Australia, the Federal Government agency that governs trademarks, to knock back Woolworths' application - filed in August last year - to trademark its logo. Apple is spooked by the fact Woolworths has gone for a blanket trademark that would allow it to slap its branding and logo on every imaginable product. Woolworths' application includes a wide class for electrical goods and technology, putting it in direct competition with Apple should the retailer choose to brand computers, music players or other devices. Woolworths has gone into credit cards and mobile phones, so the likelihood of it going into computers is not too remote. A Woolworths spokesman said: ''While we can't rule anything out, we haven't got any plans at the moment.'' A lesser class of trademark application - that for retail stores - may also pit Woolworths against Apple, which is ramping up its retail presence. Since it unveiled its new logo a year ago, Woolworths has been at pains to avoid using the word ''apple'' in commentary. The man who designed it, Hans Hulsbosch, said Apple was taking trademark protection ''to the extreme''. ''Based on this logic, they would have to take action against every fruit-seller.'' Trademark lawyer Trevor Choy said it was common for Apple to prevent others from using anything that resembled an apple in a logo or marketing. ''They are just covering any eventualities,'' he said, adding that less than 5 per cent of such actions made it to court. Apple declined to comment.

  21. out of interest. the c64 that wont tune. i assume your going via rf modulator.if you have a look at the rf modulator the c64 had ( i assume it does im not the familair with the c64 internals) does it have a small pot you can tune on the rf output the reason i say this, on the tandy colour computer there was a small silver box on the inside of the micro.it was the rf modulator.if you removed the cover from the tandy coco and looked at the silver box there was a small screw on top of it. if you twisted/turned this small screw you could change the frequency / tv channel it produced a picture on your tv on. so, do you have one of the rf boxes in side yout c64? can you see a small hole in it with a lot underneath it?
  22. certainly sounds like one is having dramas with video output for sure.
