We learn to talk like that for Job security?

Went to visit a friend that worked at Apple in Cupertino. Their main office had four big buildigs with an open space in the middle. You had to go thru the build foyer's to get to the quad. And the quad was big enough for an outdoor stage and seating area along with a softball and vollyball field and outdoor seating area for their cafeteria that was more like a cafe.

Anyway every Friday a 4pm there was free food and drinks and a band. My friend said it was a social party so different groups could get togehter and maybe help each other with their projects. To keep things under wraps the items and projects were given name whle under develpment.. One computer/motherboard they named the Carl Sagan. He somehow heard about it and asked them to stop using his name. They did, but they changed the name to Stupid Astronomer. Carl Sagan took them to court. Of course, the judge threw it out. But, in the proceedings Apple's lawysers were put on court record calling Carl Sagan a stupid astronomer 16 times.
