Meet Jack-Jack

So Sam wanted me to come up with a name for the new Dual-2.5GHz PowerMac G5. He wanted an old-man name but I couldn’t think of one that I liked. Then I thought maybe since it’s a dual-processor machine, something twinny, or two-headed, or something. (Dumb, I know, riiiiight?) Then I thought maybe I’d get a cool name from The Incredibles, which we saw Friday night. Typical me, I forgot all about it by the time the movie was over. It was an amazing movie. Everything was genius, even the silliest details (in typical Pixar fashion).

Anyhoo, Sam leans over to me after the movie and says, “We should call the G5 ‘Jack Jack’.” Genius! It fits with the movie, fits with the twinny thing (sorta), and it’s an old man name, too. (Hi, dad!)

So, folks, meet Jack-Jack.
