    I believe to have found the reason that people who are new to the Mac world call our computers MAC.

    http://www.dv-gear.com/firewire-cameras/orange-micro-ibot-firewire-desktop-video-camera.htm

    Scroll down to where it says included software. The whole thing stems from web designers of the late 90s and 00s typing the word Mac as they do PC; thinking that the titles followed the same rules!

    Now, how should we go about fixing this problem?

    I think if you spent less time thinking about it it wouldnt bother you. Mac, MAC, mac, mAC, pretty much gets the point across to me.

    I gave that one up a long time ago. I don't even much worry about those that use Mac as a company name, rather than a brand. I once replied to a query about my MacBook ("what kind of computer is that?") by responding that it's an Apple. I got a dumb stare and a response of, "are they making computers now? I thought Apple only made iPods (or 'I-pods')."

    Nobody does. But it can still watch you.
