Slightly addicted to posting blog questions
Dont use google for this one. I work at HP Labs, so while digging up some company history, I found that in the 1960s, HP spun off a small company called Dynac, which specialized in producing digital equipment, and was later absorbed back by HP itself. The name Dynac would probably have stood for "Dynamics" or "Dynamic Electronics" or something of that sort, but what was the other MAJOR reason why this name was chosen?
Well, the answer is that when you turn the "hp" logo upside down, you get "dy" for Dynac. Anand Shankar, Joshan and Phanindra (on buzz) get this right.
