- The 'i' in iPod, iPad…
Got into a little discussion last night about how it’s so common for people to go on about themselves and how social media proliferates individualistic ‘me me me’ communications with “I did this” or “I’m…” before the person I was discussing this with said “like the i in iPod and Apple products”
I’d never considered that some people thought the i in Apple product names related to the user.
I’d always thought about it in terms of the HP iPaq where it probably meant ‘internet’ or some other technical thing…
So, what do you think the i stands for / means?
And for the record, what do you think of Apple? Is there a correlation between people liking / disliking Apple and what they think the ‘i’ stands for?

“Apple declared the ‘i’ in iMac to stand for “Internet”; it also represented the product’s focus as a personal device (‘i’ for “individual”).”
Have used mac’s for over a decade, since OS 8, when they were focused at the professional creative market. Now they just seem to target the hipsters and the wanna-bes.
Still, can’t fault their laptops, and with OS X being built on a BSD unix core (version of) makes it a solid platform. However, most people that buy them only do so because they’re shiny and look cool – end up spending thousands on them just to go on facebook.Posted 6 years ago
ican’t believe people have so little in their lives that they have to discuss this stuff on a mountain bike forum. this thread has taken 60 secs of my life that I’ll never get back
What were you expecting from the title? A meta-analysis of Nietzsche? Irrefutable proof of creation? Scintillating discourse on the relative merits of tubeless tyres?
You came here and read it voluntarily, knowing what it was about. You’ve only got yourself to blame, you moany arse.

re. the iRack….
my aunt, who’s always been a bit ditty, was at Stanstead airport shortly after 9/11 drinking coffee with a friend waiting for someone at arrivals.
there came an annoucement over the tannoy asking Mr Mohammed (insert other generic islamic name) to return to Tierack. my aunt leant over to her friend and said “it could be one of those terrorists”. her friend agreed and they got there knickers in a twist wondering whether there was going to be an attack.
at this point the guy behind, who had obviously been listening, leant over and informed them that Tierack had nothing to do with Iraq or Iran, but was merely a shop… selling ties.Posted 6 years ago
