What’s in a name?

Have you ever wondered why we have sites and companies with names like Twitter, Foursquare, and Android? Mashable has some answers in a fun article posted yesterday.

11 True Stories Behind Tech’s Top Names

Mashable is a great resource for all things social media and technology. I recommend it for keeping up with the latest news, developments, and tips for using social media and seeing what’s on the horizon. You can follow them on Twitter @mashable, “like” them on Facebook, or in one of the many other ways those techies make themselves so conveniently available.

Cheers,

  1. Nintendo was my favorite. I had no idea it had such a deep meaning!

    • I loved the Nintendo definition, too! Also, the rumors about how Apple got its name – they were pretty funny. I wonder which, if any, is true!

  2. So interesting!! Very cool article! Thanks for the info on Mashable as well! I always meant to look up what the site did exactly and kept forgetting!!
