Ankit Sud has posted a list of the stories behind some top IT companies and brands.
You can read how RedHat got its name from a Cornell University lacrosse cap. Learn how apples are Steve Jobs’ favourite fruit and how he “threatened to call his company Apple Computers if the other colleagues didn’t suggest a better name by 5 o’clock”. Find out – or even remember – that Hotmail was once called “HoTMaiL”.
Ponder how things would be if Intel had ended up being called “‘Moore Noyce”.
Marvel that the whole post, packed with pop-up clicksor ads, is ripped off without attribution from a longer list on day2day activities.
What is it with some Indian bloggers ? A cultural thing for which I should show more respect or something else?
