Could our very own South County city be on Apple's radar for the name of its next Mac operating system?
At the Apple event in San Francisco on Wednesday, the city of Arroyo Grande made an appearance in a presentation about the tech giant's new 3-D touch screen for the new iPhone.
If you blinked, you might have missed it.
About 93 minutes into the presentation, an email is displayed that says:
"It's that time of year — time to start thinking about another marketing team road trip to 'research' the next name for OS X. We've picked out a few prime candidates that we think could be truly memorable."
As presenter Craig Federighi, senior vice president of software engineering, scrolled down the iPhone screen, you first see Manteca, then Tehachapi, then Arroyo Grande — complete with a photo of downtown and a link to the city's website.
There's no reason to believe Apple's marketing team will be scouting the area anytime soon. But, if it were true, maybe those marketers would find inspiration in nearby natural landscapes such as Price Canyon, Oceano Dunes or Pismo State Beach. Or how does OS X: Carrizo Plain sound, Apple?
