And a macintosh is a type of apple. Aside from the time
Steve Jobs spent in Asia, it seems meaningless to name a
computer company after this. Yet it has been wildly
successful. I don’t know, I guess I just don’t see what the
big deal is.
Actually, the name of the type of apple is usually spelled, McIntosh.
There’s a good story over at Andy Hertzfeld’s site, folklore.org, which
explains the name of the Macintosh computer. Or maybe the story is his
book… I could swear I read a story about it somewhere…
In anycase, IMO Derrick, this further proves your point.
