8) A common myth is that the controls of X are inspired by the names of the inventors. The story goes like they invented X and gave the design to Y to use in his products. They wanted Y's products to contain their name on it. However Y did not want to do that and offered them millions of dollars to NOT have their names on his product. These inventors were not happy. So that was when Y came up with the idea of naming the controls of X after their names.
However the truth is that X was invented much later by another company, who used it in their own products. What is X? Who is Y, who featured in that story?
There were 4 bros..lowel, max, hiram and norman Goldberg. invented car AC.
gave design to Ford..he offered 3million dollars
they said they want 2 million but their name has to be put on the car..The Goldberg AC or something, which ford did not agree
so he gave them 4million and he named the controls as HI, NORM, LOW and MAX
