I'd love to have an Apple with a red circle&slash for the rear window of my
car... although I can see it as a bad idea, too. Those Apple fanboys can be
scary.

Others should be allowed to use it too ...

While I agree that Samsung should trademark the
'not-an-apple' symbol you described, I think the only
reason Samsung should trademark this, is so that Apple
cannot trademark it first. This is so that Samsung
can use it and and also it would be good for Samsung to allow
any other manufacturer who is not Apple, to use it as well.

It may soon have its own special cachet and become
desirable in its own right. I know I would certainly be
much more willing to buy a product that I can be assured
is 'not-an-apple'.

I agree it would be fun to see Apple try to argue
against Samsung registering this mark.

I also would like to see a similar 'non-microsoft'
trademark become sought after. Maybe something
like the red circle slash with "MS-TAX" inside of it.
