But in all seriousness that was a bit  very alarming

No context even... Also, if that were true, I'd like to think it wouldn't be announced in the Derail thread of all places... paul-mccartney

(also, maybe I'm just being slow, but why does Ringo=apple?)

Ringo is the Japanese for apple01

 

John claims the only Beatle Yoko knew before she met him was Ringo because of his name.

Thanks, that's pretty cool. Is that why they named their company Apple, do we know?

^The origin behind Apple's name is they wanted something that was completely new, a fresh first in the business world, (as they wanted Apple to be an-everything-goes business which is no wonder why it massively failed). As we all know when you open a 'Baby's First Word' book the first entry is always:

A is for Apple

 

The Ringo=Apple coincidence made them very happy when they found out as it tied up with the whole Apple Corps message.

I think it was just a coincidence, heard that in an interview somewhere? Anyway, given the choice, I don't think they would name their company after Ringo. a-hard-days-night-ringo-12

Well they sorta did stuart-sutcliffe so that's cool for Ringo. 

The apple was the wrong color for apple01, though, so that's sad. 

uuuuuuugh i still have so much homework today. and we have to film the stupid group project thing tomorrow. bleh.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8From a marketing standpoint though that would be disastrous. Whenever someone went to google your company they'd just get results about Ringo and your company would be lost under pages of Ringo.

Then again, that would give Ringo more publicity, so I say go for it. a-hard-days-night-george-10Screw the marketing standpoint!

I can have it registered as Ringo Ltd. can always trade under a different name 😉

You'd definitely need way more emojis at the end of that slogan.

Normally I love kahoots, but time limits + math problems + a class full of really smart people - a calculator = a very bad score for me. a-hard-days-night-paul-7 I actually started off pretty good but then the questions kept getting harder and I had to start guessing... but hey at least I didn't get last? :/

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8That's more or less what happened with us, everyone just guessed and got everything wrong. Some of the questions weren't even about math (one was about PF and @Beatlebug came to mind 😉 ) but teams are fun. We didn't get to pick names though, we had to use our real ones a-hard-days-night-paul-10 I normally name myself after a Greek god or goddess.

The teachers only let us pick names sometimes and it usually ends in chaos.

You didn't think of me? I literally just made a PF reference!a-hard-days-night-paul-10
