Why Are Things Related To Computers Named After Animals Or Otherwise Lack Creative Names? | All About Money Online

“Viruses” and “worms” and “horses” attack your computer. Your pointing device is called a “mouse”. Computers have “mother” boards, and “master” and “slave” drives. Companies are named with idiotic words such as Yahoo, Google or BlueTooth, or named after fruits such as Blackberry and Apple. Why aren’t high tech things given high tech names instead of something you’d see in a zoo or a biology class.

I’m sick of it.
