Leading Software Company Changes Name to Avoid Confusion with Internet
Porn Denver -- A leading developer of high-performance graphical
software has changed its name from X Inside to Xi Graphics. The
reason: Ongoing confusion between the software developer and the
increasing number of X-rated pornography companies on the Internet.
"We develop software that solves performance, compatability, and
correcness issues in the UNIX X Windows environment," explains Richard
Van Dyke, vice president of marketing. "However, we do not address the
performance issues of the sexually adventurous."
The name X Inside brought a plethora of requests for pornographic
material, and even impacted the company principals in their dealings
outside the computer field. "An aspiring model even went so far as to
show me a portfolio of highly suggestive photographs," explained
Thomas Roell, president and chief technology designer. "We felt a name
change was in order."
