Anyone ever think about this?

I know this might be a stupid question, but has anyone ever thought about what the "T" in "T-Mobile" stands for?
Telephone-Mobile?

Couldn't be, because then T-Zones wouldn't make any sense.

I've got it!
Tapioca! It's "Tapioca-Mobile" duh!

Really though, what does it stand for?!

I don't know of anybody in the world who would dwell on this subject!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yea...I suppose some might wonder about it. I personally don't care, because they provide excellent service. If you're really this troubled about the name, you could call t-mobile or go to your nearest store and inquire about this matter

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
