Did you know that Steve Jobs didn’t name the iMac?
In fact, he had decided on an almost entirely different name.
Can you imagine having Apple — Steve Jobs — as your client?
Steve Jobs came into the room and already had a name for his creation and would only consider something different if he could be dazzled.
Mad Men, much?
Jobs wanted to name the iconic iMac:
Yes. MacMan. Rhymes with Pac-Man. Can you believe it!?!
You can read more about this amazing story on Co.DESIGN, but let me ask you:
Had the iMac been named, “MacMan,” would it have seen the same success?
