How Your Favorite Tech Got Its Name

Ever wonder how popular tech products like Firefox, the iPod, Twitter and Wikipedia all got their names? Well the crew at CIO have made an interesting little list of how some of these popular tech products actually got their names.

The list includes 10 tech products; the iPod, BlackBerry, Firefox, Twitter, Windows 7, ThinkPad, Android, Wikipedia, Mac OS X and the "Big Cats," and Red Hat Linux.

Some of these are pretty obvious, Windows 7 of course is because the new OS will be the seventh edition of Windows, but a couple might surprise you.
