Some weeks ago, I was struck by the thought that Apple had almost
entirely managed to scrub its corporate communications of the word
“Macintosh.” It’s not surprising, of course, but I was curious if
the company had slipped up anywhere. To find out, I put together
a complex Google search that focused on just Apple sites,
eliminating those which host third-party content like
discussions.apple.com. It also eliminates pages pointing at
technical specifications for old products, a page listing obsolete
products, and a spurious link to the Wikipedia page on HyperCard
that somehow got an apple.com URL.
My search confirmed my initial hunch that there is only one
official remaining use of the word “Macintosh” by today’s Apple.
Be sure to read the comments — there’s more than just one instance.
