Company Adobe History
Also Adobe was launched in John Warnock’s garage. The company’s name, Adobe, comes from the Adobe Waterway in Los Altos, California, which runs also behind Warnock’s House. The word “Adobe” comes from the Arabic word also “brick”, which means a type of clay also used in construction. The reason for this name is the availability of this watercourse on this type of mud.
In 1982, Steve Jobs tried to buy the company for $5 million, but Warnock and Kishki refused.
