According to Steve Jobs
(Apple Inc. Chairman and
CEO.), Giving the name of
Apple products, beginning
with the letter 'i' gives
meaning to the user.
i for internet
When he first announced
the iMac in 1998, Apple boss
Steve Jobs said the letter 'i'
for Internet and 'Mac' for
Macintosh. So the marriage
between the Internet with
their product, be the iMac.
i for individual
However, according to Jobs,
the letter ' i ' does not only
represent the results for the
Internet. There is another
meaning that can be
represented by the letter 'i'',
ie the individual, which refers
to the personal nature of
the computer; instructed, as
the computer is also
intended for educational
purposes, information and
inspiration.
' i ' which means ' I ' give the
impression of a deep and
personal identity refers to
the owner of these Apple
products. A sense of
'closeness' and the sense of
'having' separate between
the owner and owned Apple
products that want to build
from this Apple product, and
it is rarely possessed by any
other product.
Opinion: Contrast to
Microsoft products
(Windows), which always
used the word 'My' as in 'My
Documents', etc.., Which in
translation means
'belonging' that can not
stand alone because they
have no words that follow
the word 'My' earlier, which
means that a dependence
on the owner. Thus, the 'i' to
position himself as a
principal subject of which is
independent and can stand
alone, while "My" position
himself as an actor who can
not stand alone and
dependent.
