It was just announced that Apple and Cisco will share the usage of iPhone.
The companies said they reached an agreement that will allow Apple to use the name for its sleek new multimedia device in exchange for exploring wide-ranging "interoperability" between the companies' products in the areas of security, consumer and business communications. No other details of the agreement were released.Additional clauses in the agreement state that Steve Jobs will stop calling Cisco's VOIP phones, "Total pieces of garbage built on incredibly bad taste", and that Cisco will be allowed to sit with the "Cool Kids" in the Cafeteria.
Sounds fine by me. No human in their right mind will confuse the two for twins. Search engines, on the other hand...
