The Lost Art of Apple Code Names →

Linus Edwards:

The most infamous computer code named after a famous person was the PowerMac 7100, code named Carl Sagan. When Sagan heard of this code name he was so offended he actually sued Apple, even though the code name was strictly internal and never publicly advertised. Apple’s team subsequently added new code names for the PowerMac 7100, including BHA (Butt Head Astronomer) and LAW (Lawyers are Wimps).

The rest of Linus’ article is great, but the PowerMac 7100 story always makes me smile.
