Microsoft Settlement Far From Excel-lent

Savvysoft isn't so savvy when it comes to trademarks.

The company, realizing that Microsoft hadn't registered Excel as a trademark, launched a product called "TurboExcel," and then tried to finagle Microsoft into paying heaps of dough to keep the name "Excel."

It didn't work, and now TurboExcel, which runs on top of Microsoft Excel, is called "Calc4Web."

Not the catchiest name I've ever heard, but it sure does beat Windows Live Hotmail. Is it Windows, is it Live or is it Hotmail?
