People in the blogosphere are unsure why Apple has changed its naming from Powerbook to MacBook. Here’s Steve Jobs official statement:
“It’s a new name because we’re kinda done with ‘Power’ and because we want ‘Mac’ in the name of our products.”
This would imply that the MacBook name may not only replace the PowerBook but the iBook as well. Also raises some questions about the continued use of the “PowerMac” name.
