E agora, algo completamente do mesmo

Só que em inglês e não tem mesmo a ver com o ultimo post. Encontrei neste fórum como surgiram os nomes que hoje em dia são sinónimos de informática e tudo o relacionado com TI.

Por exemplo:

Adobe - came from name of the river Adobe Creek that ran behind the house of founder John Warnock.

CISCO - its not an acronymn but the short for San Francisco.

Hotmail - Founder Jack Smith got the idea of accessing e-mail via the web from a computer anywhere in the world. When Sabeer Bhatia came up with the business plan for the mail service, he tried all kinds of names ending in 'mail' and finally settled for hotmail as it included the letters "html" - the programming language used to write web pages. It was initially referred to as HoTMaiL with selective upper casing.

HP - Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard tossed a coin to decide whether the company they founded would be called Hewlett-Packard or Packard-Hewlett.

Intel - Bob Noyce and Gordon Moore wanted to name their new company 'Moore Noyce' but that was already trademarked by a hotel chain, so they had to settle for an acronym of INTegrated ELectronics.
