Which company was originally called BackRub?

In today's Wednesday Wisdom one of our Developers challenged us all with an online tech quiz, with a few trick questions included that made us think twice. We all learned something new, from Monty Python inspiring spam in the context of emails, Google originally being called BackRub because the program analysed the web’s back links and the fact that the first CD recorder cost $20,000!

Jo and Caroline took the top two spots, unsurprising as they are in the development team! Charlie and Alice took the next two spots. A great debate followed as Alice actually scored 46% but just wasn't fast enough to get the top points for each question.
