I don't think it's viable that Apple asserts ownership of everything that starts with "i", Google wants "g", etc. These are simply too obvious and almost guaranteed to run into conflicts (as iPhone just did). Google's got a unique, well-recognized trademark in their name. If they standardized on GoogleMail, for example, they's eliminate all these pesky disputes and boost their primary brand in the process.
