The Great Last-Minute Cash-Grab Lawsuit!

Ladies and gentlemen, we present The Great Last-Minute Tiger Lawsuit! Tiger Direct, a cheap-ass discount on-line retailer ("factory refurbished!" "scratch and dent!" "second-rate crap!"), has filed a last-minute suit against Apple over the "Tiger" name. The part where Apple acquired the trademarks a couple of years ago has apparently not entered into the equation. Neither has the fact that no one (including retarded monkeys) could possibly confuse a new OS with a discount low-tech liquidator.

As for the burning question as to why Tiger Direct waited until the last minute to file suit ... the obvious answer is "hoping for a large cash payout to make the problem go away". Losers.
