    So I ordered a new HDD from Apple yesterday and got it today. Where it normally says ACI (Apple Computer, Inc.) on the packing slip it now only says AI (Apple, Inc.). I don't know, it was just interesting I guess... (wow, this is turning into a meaningless thread FAST :eek: )

    Umm... anyway, I like the new name. It "fits" better, and is a sign of things to come (I hope! :D )

    Probably because they now make the :apple: TV, iPods are now really popular, (not only computers like they did in the 80's+) :cool:

    The name change has been known about for a while.

    Obviously that wasn't the point of this thread. Instead, I imagine the OP just has a bit of nostalgia for the halcyon days of yore that they wished to share with us.

    Thanks.

    I like the name change but it's not that big of a deal.

    Exactly, gauchogolfer. Your words just came out a lot better than mine. :)

    I would guess someone in some thread (or even that real life place) might have noticed already, but it is kind of ironically funny that by dropping the 'Computer' from their name, the acronym becomes a well-known computing term!! :p :D (AI = Artificial Intelligence).

    A glimpse of things to come indeed perhaps. Apple robots? Increased personality in the OS?

    Or for now, The Steven Spielberg-promoted A.I. video iPod by AI ?! :D

    Call me all wierd but I save EVERYTHING, including receipts and correspondence, being a collector.

    Well, it paid off. All that old stuff said "Apple Computer, Inc."...
