    I ran into this website by Rick Walton today:Example:
    The Space Technology Alphabet

    anti-matter
    booster
    cryogenics
    drone
    ejection
    fission
    galaxy
    half-life
    ignition
    jet
    Kepler
    lander
    module
    nozzle
    orbit
    payload
    quantum theory
    radar
    shuttle
    telescope
    ultrasonics
    vacuum
    work station
    x-ray
    yaw
    zenith​
    Let's make an Apple Computer Alphabet!

    This is not a game that will go on indefinitely, so get in while you can. Here are the rules:
    1. Post a list of 26 words or phrases, starting with the letters A through Z, each having something to do with Apple Computer and its products.

    2. Your list cannot use a word or phrase that's been used in a previously posted list.

    3. When we run out of unique Apple-related words for A-Z lists, the game is over and we all win!​

    Yikes is probably a better one. I picked Yellow Dog because it is specifically designed for PPC computers, which pretty much only includes Macs.

    I'm impressed - nice work!

    I changed the rules so phrases are officially allowed, so perhaps we can think of a few more.

    Don't worry if somebody else posts while you are composing yours and that produces duplicates. No penalty points for accidental duplicates like that.
