∞ Salesforce CEO gifts App Store trademark to Jobs


Benioff liked the name so much that he trademarked the term and bought the domain. It was only when Apple (and Jobs) introduced the App Store on the iPhone that the Salesforce chief decided he needed to something about the term and the domain, now that the Cupertino-based company was using it.

He gave the trademark and domain to Jobs as a thank you. That’s how much Jobs meant to the industry.
