Stupid Macs

I just want to mention a fact that I think gets overlooked often; Apple can't spell.

The Apple Macintosh, you know, those stylish popular computers and laptops, they're spelt incorrectly. The apple, the actual fruit, is spelt McIntosh. You would think that the company "Apple" would perhaps use the spelling of the apple for their computer, but they didn't.

This fact did not escape people in the 80s and early 90s, but it seems today that no one seems to give it a second thought. Beyond the Mac vs Mc spelling, Apple fails to capitalize the "I", but that's just nitpicking. Still, Apple can't spell.
