Good Morning Silicon Valley: With all due respect, sir, I don't think we can backdate the iPhone trademark

 Lots of speculation in the press this morning about whether this was some kind of brilliant free-advertising move on Apple's part.  If that was the intent, I think it's going to backfire -- as free advertising for Cisco rather than Apple.

Looks like Cisco's been iPh0wn3d. Apple has not agreed to license Cisco's iPhone mark, as the networking giant implied earlier this week (see "Keyboards across country shorted out by 'iPhone drool' "). Nor does it intend to, apparently.
