What Is the Full Meaning Of HP?

You might have seen these two letters emblazoned on someone's Laptop or a desktop computer, perhaps it might belong to you_ well, do you know what it stands for? Here to enlighten you so just keep calm and follow attentively. The Hp brand happens to have a very interesting history behind its rise to Global recognition, particularly how the brand name was coined. In 1935, two electrical engineering graduates from Standford University had decided to start a company, and their vision was quite an extraordinary one. Their names were Bill Hewlett and David Packard. It so happened that from the confines of a garage, they started working on their dreams. Then, the time came to go public with their company_ but before that, they had to arrive at a suitable name. A brand that would stand the test of time. So do you know what they did? They decided to use their last names, but there appeared a little problem of a sort. Was it going to be Packard-Hewlett or Hewlett-Packard? The two then decided to toss a coin to settle the matter. You do happen to know what the outcome was, right? Yeah, that was how the brand " Hewlett-Packard" came into being. Should it have been the other side of the coin, your computers would rather be emblazoned with "Ph" instead. Do well to subscribe if you haven't for more interesting articles such as this.
