Steve Jobs lied about naming Apple Lisa after daughter


California: In her upcoming memoir, Lisa Brennan-Jobs, late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs’ daughter has revealed that her father lied about naming a computer after her. Apple Lisa was released in 1983 and as Lisa-Brennan Jobs was born in 1978, it was inferred that the computer was named after her, Mashable reported.

However, in her memoir titled Small Fry, Lisa-Brennan Jobs reveals that her father lied to her until she was 27 and U2 founder Bono exposed the truth. Lisa, short for Locally Integrated Software Architecture, was in fact a failure with 3,000 unsold units.
