11. Steve Jobs Wanted The 'Macintosh' To be Called The 'Bicycle'
The Apple Macintosh (now shortened to just 'Mac') got its name because the macintosh was Jef Raskin's favourite apple. Steve Jobs wasn't a fan of the name, which started out as just a code word, and wanted it to be changed to Bicycle. Although Jobs made repeated attempts at changing the name to Bicycle while Raskin was out of the office, 'Macintosh' stuck, and was the name that ended up on each computer.
