Trivia: The company nickname is “Big Blue,” but what does IBM stand for?

Correct Answer: International Business Machines
So why is this answer correct? : In 1911, three small companies that made punch-card tabulators and various office products joined forces to form the Computing-Tabulating-Recording Company. In 1914, Thomas Watson became the general manager and gained full control of the company by 1924, the same year it changed its name to International Business Machines Corporation. Today, we simply call the organization IBM.
