Steve's Lame Name Lessons from Bill

by MacHugger / January 30, 2006 2:28 PM PST

So has Steve officially signed up for the course, How to Choose the Lamest Product Name Possible taught by the marketing geniuses at Microsoft who brought you such winners as "Windows" and "Office" and "Vista" <yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawn>

I just read a Macrumors tidbit that says Apple has trademarked the name Mac Pro - presumably to replace the Power Mac moniker.

What happened Steve? Even the movie "Cars" looks like it might be the first Pixar movie to blow chunks (I LOVED every previous one). I think our boy Steve needs a little creative Viagra 'cause something suddenly went limp when he hit the Big Five O.
