This Register article talks about the Apple vs Apple case. I personally love this quote:
And the judge, Mr Justice Edward Mann, surprised the assembly by admitting he is an iPod user. He wondered if this disqualified him from judging the case. Lord Grabiner QC, representing Apple Comp., told him he was not. "I'm delighted to hear that," he told Mann.
Now, if Apple Corps
had claimed that the justice's iPod ownership did not disqualify him, that would be a slightly different story. But the case in question centers around whether Apple
's creation of the iPod breaches an earlier settlement preventing the computer company from entering the business of selling music.
