DO you know this????read it???
Mercedes- This is the first name of the daughter of Emil Jellinek, who worked for the early Daimler company around 1900. ******** Hitachi- old place name, literally "sunrise" ******** Google- the name is an intentional misspelling of the word googol, reflecting the company's mission to organize the immense amount of information available online. ******** Fuji- from the highest Japanese mountain Mount Fuji. *********************** Adidas- from the name of the founder Adolf (Adi) Dassler. ***************** Adobe- came from name of the river Adobe Creek that ran behind the houses of founders John Warnock and Chuck Geschke . ******** AltaVista- Spanish for "high view". ***************** Apple- for the favourite fruit of co-founder Steve Jobs and/or for the time he worked at an apple orchard. He was three months late in filing a name for the business, and he threatened to call his company Apple Computer if his colleagues didn't suggest a better name by 5 p.m. Apple's Macintosh is named after a popular variety of apple sold in the US. Apple also wanted to distance itself from the cold, unapproachable, complicated imagery created by the other computer companies at the time had names like IBM, NEC, DEC, ADPAC, Cincom, Dylakor, Input, Integral Systems, SAP, PSDI, Syncsort and Tesseract. The new company sought to reverse the entrenched view of computers in order to get people to use them at home. They looked for a name that was unlike the names of traditional computer companies, a name that also supported a brand positioning strategy that was to be perceived as simple, warm, human, approachable and different. Note: Apple had to get approval from the Beatle's Apple Corps to use the name 'Apple' and paid a one-time royalty of $100,000 to McIntosh Laboratory, Inc., a maker of high-end audio equipment, to use the derivative name 'Macintosh', known now as just 'Mac'.
