Can’t believe I have not seen this before. Although Noah pushing it just a little bit right at the end. And why haven’t I heard of Pirates Of Silicon Valley before as well? I am so not in the loop sometimes.
After finding PopClip on MinimalMac I have quickly grown to like this tiny, but useful, Macintosh application.
Something very intuitive about selecting text and this tiny little PopClip appearing. It also quickly disappears if you select text accidentally and don’t need to do anything with it, so it doesn’t get in the way.

I understand, and fully appreciate, the idea behind trademark protection especially with big brand cases like Apple.
If a new company set up with plans to sell consumer related technology then one would be quite silly to use an apple of any kind as a brand mark. In this case we are talking a small German coffeehouse/child’s playroom that have used a red apple with a nice illustration within it.
Is this a tad OCD by Apple in protecting their brand.
They want to own anything Apple themed, and we also know they chase all sorts of trademark, and brand issues very aggressively, but a small German child’s playroom?
