MacBook name sucks. Find a better one

Recommended Posts

The MacBook name sucks pretty much. I know they couldn't call it PowerBook anymore since it doesn't have a PowerPC in, but name, they could have found a better name. I thought that by thinking about the problem for at least a minute we could {censored} out a better name.

 

Now I gotta give a better name um.... mmmh.. Apple mmh.. AppleBook. Ok, still sucks, but yet less than MacBook. OK your turn now

 

PS : Has anyone noticed how the iMac design sucks ass? No wonder whether or not the iMac would have been such a revolution in 1998 with such a design.

Powerbooks existed before they could even put a PowerPC processor in a mobile machine, so the name is in no way tied to the PowerPC moniker. Name sucks, 'nuf said.

What is wrong w/the iMac design? I kinda like them...

 

I hate the new name, I'll just say MBP.

It does suck! Sounds like you can get one with a Happy Meal at MacDonalds.

 

They could have kept PoweBook - no problem.

 

Hope the PoweMac doesn't become the MacMac!

mmmhhh, I should change my screen name for PowerGirl? Sounds like PowerPuff Girl, I don't think so.

 

So my next comp will macgirl's MacBook, I like it, I prefer than MacTelBook.

 

I also think that they still name them PowerBooks, maybe CoreBook LOL, DuoBook more LOL, BTW there was an Apple Macintosh PowerBook Duo back in 1994.

It's just a name nothing else. Until I don't have conversations with my notebook I'll give a {censored} about his name :)

Something like ProBook or ProfessionalBook would be better?

 

Apple ProBook is good I think, but what about iBook ?

FunBook ? :)) or even better.. HomeBook ? :))

I was thinking of something along the lines of IntelliBook (but Microsoft will probably b*tch about it with their IntelliMouse). IntelliBook even includes the Intel name.

 

I wonder what PowerMac is gonna be...my guess is Macintosh Pro?

A few more suggestions from IRC:

 

appletop

notemac / iNotemac

iPortable

Mob-i-mac

BookIntosh

intellitosh

intellimac

 

 

& less seriously, perhaps:

 

iPricey

Snobbintosh

sMack

sMacMyBitchUp

macDaddyBook

BigMacAttack

MacGyver

 

 

So how hard can it be? how unimaginative is MacBook? I hope they didn't spend any money coming up with it ..

tada....!

 

The TravelMac Pro! (vs the TravelMac which replaces the iBook)

 

(okay, I kinda stole that moniker from the Acer laptop line, but it rolls nicely of the tongue, doesn't it?)

haha tough about the IntelliBook too, but I thought it'd sound too much as if it was some Intel product, after all the PowerBook wasn't nammed IBMBook. PentiBook then maybe? I still like PowerBook better

haha, i like the BookIntosh one, sounds somewhat silly. Just what I thought tho, so easy to come up with something less worse than MacBook. All of that just to make the transition clear I guess, pfff..

I liked the suggestion of iBook Pro then they wouldn't have had to modify the name of the iBook when it gets intel'd. But if apple really do want the name mac in every product i guess the ibook is going to become the macbook. I hope somebody has words with steve about that one it just sucks!!

    • all the possible frequencyes i have added seems to work fine at the moment, i have added a lot of different frequencyes to support better all kinds of professional applications, inclunding strange sampling rates and goes from 8khz up to 176.4 khz, unfortunately 192 khz does not seems to work even on cards which should support it like the audigy rx, but other frequencyes just works fine and at the moment i have tested only the sound blaster audigy rx and the audigy sb0090 (1st gen audigy) and i can confirm that all the frequencyes from 8khz up to 176.4 khz does work on that card, so i think that such frequencyes should work on all the audigy 2, 2sz, 4 cards as well, tomorrow i will test with my sound blaster live! cards and i will let you know, but here are also some photos (pro tip: use cmd + alt/opton + 4 and then press space to make a screenshot of a single window):
    • Guy's if something happened, this is most likely Admins and Moderators are working there, yes we still need some things to be done, but if it's still not yet, it's because of time or something we don't know, we just have to be patient! Slow things is just because they are working in the same time, patience for that problem is good, and loading things, but apparently now is good, for me these things I've accounted them yesterday and this morning, but now they are gone. For the missing things like the Old insanelymac and theme, please we need them, and excuse my ignorance!
    • Good evening to all. So, I have an external 1TB seagate HD and it always reads normally, but now when I plug it into my HACK it just does not read, it does not even appear on the disk utility. The light always turns blue from the HD without blinking. However I plugged it into windows, on a macbook and it worked normally. I already formatted my hack but it did not work. Thank you in advance for the help and sorry my bad english   my kexts: AppleALC.kext FakeSMC.kext IntelGraphicsFixup.kext IntelMausiEthernet.kext Lilu.kext WhateverGreen.kext VoodooHDA.kext USBInjectAll.kext NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext   GTX 1080 Windforce core i5 7º generation 8gb Ram H170M Plus BR    
    • WOL packet is reaching the machine from LAN and from WAN (set with port forwarding), tested with "nc -l -u 9".
    • For me the forum seems reasonably OK, except whenever I see the word 'LOADING' - like when clicking another page of a thread - when it just stops completely and never returns.   I use an adblocker, so adverts aren't slowing me down.  Browsing the forum indexes is not too bad, as is clicking to view any thread.  Ditto clicking a link in an email notification to go to a particular post in a thread.  Sometimes it takes maybe five seconds to load a page, which is a bit too long.  But it's not terrible.   But then whenever I click on any other thread page, which tries to do the in-page content load (without a full page refresh), I see LOADING and then nothing further happens, even after minutes.   It's definitely not related to which content is loaded, but rather how it is loaded.  For example if I go to the index for this forum, then click directly to page 11 of this thread, it loads in 1-5 seconds.  But if I click the link to page 11 within the thread, it never comes back.  I just see this, forever:     This stuck issue seems to me likely something broken (code or configuration?) rather than a general slowdown.  But maybe there's also a general slowdown, especially for those who are seeing adverts.
