Umm... don't call me stupid, but could somebody tell me what a TiBook is?
TiBook sounds a bit like iBook, another of Apple's potable machines, so it kind of has the whole double meaning thing happening, too.Originally posted by Biggles
its a PowerBook.
But see most people just dont like to type all that out, so they just call it TiBook for short (Ti is the chemical symbol for titanium and thats what the powerbook is made of). And it just sounds cool
I remember that Aztec...that was some wacky math!!Originally posted by MacAztec
Biggles is correct there. I wanted to say one thing.
Biggles- I love your signature. You know I am Mac_User, right? I remember that post, exactly. Someone said something about a formula on updates, and I got mad! I posted that, and when I looked it over, I was right!
He he QAg. Guilty - that was me. I really can't say it's taken off though. Oh well, maybe one day...Originally posted by dukestreet
If you don't know the atomic abreviation for Titanium, its not exactly obvious to everyone. I've seen a lot of 'nicknames' that took me a post or two to figure out.
Some I can remember off the top of my head.
mobo - motherboard
QAg - QuickSilver
Right. Let's be ignorant and scare away all those, that aren't yet familiar with our type of lingo. It's really stupid to not just go forward and simply explain the term, if this guy doesn't know it's meaning.Originally posted by Grokgod
I think its amazing to be on an apple board and not know what a Ti is.
how can you get in front of the steering wheel if you didnt open the door to the car.
In through the trunk?
You beat me to the punch.... I have been using TiBook for the same reason, just shortened the words to get the condensed version. It also rolls off the tounge easier then saying Titanium PowerBook G4.... TiBook... short and sweet.Originally posted by dukestreet
TiPB - titanium PowerBook, that's how I've been abreviating it for a while now. Anyone got any others?
It's actually an acronym for a great tech...Originally posted by mcrain
Ok, the smart allek in me (devil on my left shoulder) is making me post this, so take it with a great salt lake:
If TiBook stands for the Titanium Power book, what does sh** mean? Is that some sort of windo$e software or intel chip?
That makes calling someone a S.H.I.T.head a compliments... that could be slang for lead, or head, S.H.I.T.Originally posted by Rower_CPU

So the next time you hear someone say: "Oh, him...he's the ****" you'll know what they're talking about.
