Why the name NSBliss?
The “NS” is a reference to NeXTSTEP, the operating system from which iOS and OS X are derived. Many objects in iOS and OS X start with the letters “NS”, including the base class (NSObject) from which all objects are derived.
“Bliss,” is derived from following one’s bliss — doing what gives one the most joy. The strip, blog, and the act of programming are all labors of love.
Why the name Bejopi?
Bejopi is drawn from the first two letters of my son’s name, Benjamin Joseph Pingleton, born on the 4th of July, 1991.
Ben is alive and well, but alas, he is an Android fan. Sometimes the Apple does fall far from the tree.
Why the name Gatmalvo?
Gatmalvo comes from the spanish words, “gato malvado,” or “evil cat.” Gatmalvo was originally the house cat from Hades.
Like all cats, he sought to control the world. He decided the best way to go about achieving his plan was to go into I.T.
I think that was probably his best move.
Why the name Cecil?
Because he looks like a “Cecil” to me. I wish I had a better an answer. I could mention Mr. DeMille, but that would be untrue.
For the record, I pronounce Cecil as “See-sull,” but you can of course pronounce it however you want to.
Is NSBliss the name of the Comic Strip or the Blog?
Is NSBliss sponsored by Apple Inc.?
This site is completely independent from Apple Inc. I am hoping someday they’ll know of its existence and appreciate what a huge Apple fan I am.
As a developer I am bound be disclosure agreements, so this strip/blog will not divulge privileged information. Nor will I speculate on rumored products.
You also won’t catch me bashing Apple in any way. There truly is not a company, developer community, or line of products I admire more.
