TTABlog Test: How Did These Three Recent Section 2(d) Appeals Turn Out?

Here are three very recent TTAB decisions in Section 2(d) appeals, decided on the same day. I'm not giving any hints, so you're on your own. How do you think these appeals turned out? [Answer in first comment].

ID ignition systems v. Id Systems--close but even then I'd be angry if someone could get that close to my name.

Pacific View and Pacific Vista is a tough one. Seems they're allowing one company to own the word Pacific.
