The Real Reason Steve Jobs Called His Company Apple

Are there times when you just look at your Apple device and try to understand why the founders of the beloved company came up with this name? After all, who would’ve thought that in the world of technology, someone would call their brand Apple? There are quite a few theories behind how founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak ended up giving the company this name. Let’s see what they are.

Steve Jobs’s Diet

Well, both the founders have different stories that they present to the world on how they came up with the name. If we talk about what Jobs told Walter Issacson, his biographer, he came up with the name while he was on his fruit diet. While he was enjoying his meal, he thought that the name of one of the fruits would be fun, spirited, and not intimidating.

Steve Wozniak’s Story

Although Jobs and Wozniak are the co-founders and are well aware of how the company was named, both of their theories suggest otherwise. Wozniak told a completely different story. He remembers coming up with the name along with Jobs when he was picking him up from the airport. Jobs came back from Oregon where he encountered a type of commune system called Apple Orchard. He suggested the name Apple Computer.

Apple Computers

Jobs and Wozniak tried to come up with a lot of other names, some that sounded a bit more relevant to the type of product they were about to bring to the market. They cycled through a lot of names, such as Matrix Electronics and Executex. But eventually, both Jobs and Wozniak agreed that the name Apple Computers was the one they wanted to go ahead with. But whatever the reason, today, we all know Apple as one of the most expensive companies in the world so the name was perfect for the duo after all.

Video Game Developer Creates Charity Fundraiser For Stray Cats

There are plenty of charities designed to help people in need. There are also countless organizations working to help homeless pets find good homes. But, what about our furry, four-legged friends who live on the streets without anyone to provide food or care? That’s the question Stray publisher Annapurna Interactive posed when it decided to use its unique skill set to help cats in need.

The Game

Stray has been considered one of the most highly-anticipated games of the year, with virtual videos circulating the internet for what appears to be years now. However, Stray, released earlier this week, has gained a charitable driving force that gives us more reasons to support it. Annapurna Interactive has collaborated with Nebraska Humane Society and Cats Protection to come up with the game. Collectively, they have requested the gamers to come forwards and donate for cat rescue to animal shelters. In lieu of it, they can win a PS4 or a PS5 code and get access to Stray. The offer is no longer valid, but Nebraska Humane Society and Cats Protection will announce the winners of the six copies of the trending game.

Positive Reviews of the Game

The game has attained a unique set of fans in pets. Various gamers have put their short videos trying the new game while their pets seem transfixed and fascinated by the feline on-screen character.

Stray is the story of a stray cat who must unravel an ancient mystery to escape a long-forgotten cybercity and reach home. Keza McDonald, the Game reviewer from The Guardian, gave the game five stars. She added that Stray is an excellent example of how a change in perspective can breathe new life into a setting to which we’ve become accustomed. The game has garnered a Metacritic rating of 84. It is a good score for a debut game, while the audiences have given it 8.6 out of 10.
