நம் வாழ்வில் நிறைய மனிதர்கள் வந்த தடம் தெரியாமல் போய் விடுவார்கள். சில் மனிதர்கள் ஒரு சில காரணங்களால் மனதில் தங்கி விடுவார்கள். அடக்கமும் திறமையும் வெகு சிலருக்குதான் கை கூடி வரும். அப்படிப் பட்டவர்களில் ஒருவர்தான் அரவிந்த். எப்போதும் சிரித்த முகம், அமைதியை கூடவே அழைத்து வரும் இயல்பு. நல்ல இரசனை. இவை எல்லாவற்றையும் விட அரை மணிநேரம் விடாமல் நாம் பேசினாலும், பொறுமையாய் கேட்கும் பண்பு. ரொம்ப நல்லவருங்க.

இரண்டு மூன்று படங்களை எடுத்து இவர் வடிவமைத்த படம்.

There are many companies ,brands and products whose names were derived from strange circumstances. Here are some:

  • Microsoft Coined by Bill Gates to represent the company that was devoted to MICROcomputer SOFTware. Originally christened Micro-Soft, the '-' was removed later on. 
  • Google The name started as a joke boasting about the amount of information the search-engine would be able to search. It was originally named 'Googol', a word for the number represented by 1 followed by 100 zeros. After founders - Stanford graduate students Sergey Brin and Larry Page presented their project to an angel investor, they received a cheque made out to 'Google' . 
  • SUN Founded by 4 Stanford University buddies, SUN is the acronym for Snford University Network. Andreas Bechtolsheim built a microcomputer; Vinod Khosla recruited him and Scott McNealy to manufacture computers based on it, and Bill Joy to develop a UNIX-based OS for the computer. 
  • Mercedes This was actually the financier's daughter's name. 
  • Adobe This came from the name of the river Adobe Creek that an behind the house of founder John Warnock. 
  • Apple Computers It was the favorite fruit of founder Steve Jobs. He was three months late in filing a name for the business and he threatened to call his company Apple Computers if the other colleagues didn't suggest a better name by 5 O'clock. 
  • CISCO It is not an acronym as popularly believed. It is short for San Francisco. 
  • Compaq This name was formed by using COMp, for computer, and PAQ to denote a small integral object. 
  • Corel The name was derived from the founder's name Dr. Michael Cowpland. It stands for COwpland REsearch Laboratory. 
  • Hotmail Founder Jack Smith got the idea of accessing e-mail via the web from a computer anywhere in the world. When Sabeer Bhatia came up with the business plan for the mail service, he tried all kinds of names ending in 'mail' and finally settled for hotmail as it included the letters "html" - the programming language used to write web pages. It was initially referred to as HoTMaiL with selective uppercasing. 
  • Hewlett Packard Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard tossed a coin to decide whether the company they founded would be called Hewlett-Packard or Packard-Hewlett. 
  • Intel Bob Noyce and Gordon Moore wanted to name their new company 'Moore Noyce' but that was already trademarked by a hotel chain . So they had to settle for an acronym of INTegrated ELectronics. 
  • Lotus (Notes) Mitch Kapor got the name for his company from 'The Lotus Position' or 'Padmasana'. Kapor used to be a teacher of Transcendental Meditation of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. 
  • Motorola Founder Paul Galvin came up with this name when his company started manufacturing radios for cars. The popular radio company at the time was called Victrola. 
  • ORACLE Larry Ellison and Bob Oats were working on a consulting project for the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency). The code name for the project was called Oracle (the CIA saw this as the system to give answers to all questions or some such thing). The project was designed to help use the newly written SQL code by IBM. The project eventually was terminated but Larry and Bob decided to finish what they started and bring it to the world. They kept the name Oracle and created the RDBMS engine. Later they kept the same name for the company. Sony It originated from the Latin word 'sonus' meaning sound, and 'sonny' a slang used by Americans to refer to a bright youngster. 
  • Yahoo! The word was invented by Jonathan Swift and used in his book ‘Gulliver’s Travels'. It represents a person who is repulsive in appearance and action and is barely human. Yahoo! founders Jerry Yang and David Filo selected the name because they considered themselves yahoos. [Thank you Shiva...]
