    A question...
    When and why did the name Macintosh start to die out? I'm talking about the full spelling, not Mac (obviously). I recall a time when everyone said macintosh and obviously now its just MAc even on the website...but i dont seem to remember when it started to die out

    I believe in the 90's when Apple changed their campaign to a different target audience. Mac sounds a lot "cooler" then Macintosh.
