Steve Jobs was not always right. Important to remember that success is a collective effort. http://t.co/QuUBNPju
Steve Jobs had a pretty awful original name for the iMac5/31/2012
We're assuming Steve Jobs' wife named their children. In 1998, when the iMac was first being brought to fruition, the Apple co-founder had a different, utterly horrible name in mind for the company's new computer: "MacMan." In an excerpt from "Insanely Simple: The Obsession That Drives Apple's Success," author Ken Segall recalls the first time his ad agency was brought in to name the revolutionary home computer and the resistance they got to "iMac" from Jobs himself. He ultimately had a (wise) change of heart. As Segall says, the "i" led to the possibility that " Maybe, possibly, somehow, sometime, Apple would see fit to create another 'i' product?" Looks like that gamble paid off.
Which is better: iMac or MacMan?
