Do you want to know why IBM is referred to as Big Blue. Well, in the late 1970's, there a tv commercial for Brillo pads claiming that Brillo pads were better than SOS pads. The commercial referred to the Brillo pad as the Big Blue(the color of the pad). Then IBM began to be called Big Blue as a funny takeoff on the Brillo commercial by the mainframe computer people at the that time.
Actually, the way IBM got the nickname 'Big Blue' is still considered to be a sort of mystery. It is believed that company's large size is where the 'big' part comes from and the blue is thought to be from the logo of the company, which is, in fact, blue.
