Wait till Apple gets its hands on it. Then it will be iqi which looks like icky but pronounced ichee soon to be dubbed "Itchy".

I'm thinking if this thing is to take off it should be renamed. Let us recall that PAC Man was originally Pukman but was renamed so kids at the arcade wouldnt deface it to become Fukman. Learn your history. Rename that shenanigans

There will always be ignorant fools out there and imature ones aswell. I like Qi it means life force in chinese culture and thus fits perfect for a universal power standard.

I can't wait to stop buying charges or having to hope my buddy at the office has the same one cuase I forgot mine at home and my phone just died.
