1-5 isn't really true.

Are you really dùmb to not deduce that computer was coined from compute which means to calculate?

Even the word virus was coined long before the advert of computers. The reason it was named "virus" was because the early computer viruses acted like human ones.

I almost stopped reading after nos. 1, 2, and 5. They are obviously not acronyms. 1 and 2 are business names, the acronyms must have been coined by the indomie generation which you probably belong to but does not make it right.

5 is also not an acronyms too. Virus in computing is a borrowed word from biology.

Aside these, I think this is however informative and excellent write-up

Please remove Google and Yahoo from the list. They are not acronyms.
Google is the wrong spelling of the word Googol (10 raised to power 100).


Window, virus and computer are also not acronyms.

Dell is not an acronym, Dell is named after the founder Micheal Dell.
