(I think CE was one of the last names to slip out around the time the courts decreed that a name that was an acronym could not be trademarked -- at which time "NT" magically "stood for nothing" after having originally having something to do with "New Technology." I don't remember if this was the same ruling that smacked Intel, deciding that "486" could not be trademarked, since "numbers can't be trademarked" (or words to that effect) -- and when Intel asked "well, what about Boeing?" the court refused to acknowledge the absurdity of their decision.)
