Apple doesn't...

...have some sort of trademark on this 'i' in front of a word?
If so it'd be bad news for iHome, iRiver, iRobot, HP's iPaq....

If only it had 3G Backdrop...

It's a shame Clear's 4G Network is so useless. Otherwise I think it's a clever way to get in on the iPad craze.

If you're an iPhone 2G user it's pretty clever too.
I'm sure i'm just baiting the troll here...but why would you think their network is useless? I consistently average 3Mbps on my EVO, which i would consider definitely not useless. And by the end of the year they'll be in over 60 markets. Still not see...

They filter it by MAC address?

Find an Apple device and copy it's MAC address, problem solved ;)
