Tim WilsonWhat kind of idiot names a company APPLE????

I was just thinking about the idea of naming something that's very, very different from the rest of the crowd. Even with the word "Computer" in the name, "Apple" had nothing whatsoever to do with the rest of the field.

Yahoo - an acknowledgment of their own inexperience

Google - doesn't even mean anything at all

Adobe - a mixture of water and dirt

Brother - sweet name, nothing to do with fax, copiers, etc.

The success of those companies MADE those names synonymous with their fields.

I had some fun kicking those names around - any others come to mind?
