The Apple trademark engine still running, now they are covering numbers!

It looks like Apple have finally run out of other things to patent! they are now the proud owners of a word mark on the number "280"!

Apparently it is due to the fact that it is used on the icon (logo) of google maps, and depicts the interstate number of the location of the Apple HQ in Cupertino, California.

Don't go changing your company name from "280 slides" just yet though, as it was only an icon (logo) trademark and therefore has to include all associated word marks.

Interesting stuff! sort of...
