    Nikon - A Jeopardy TV Game Show Answer

    Under the heading of 'Business Names', this question was asked a
    few nights ago on TV's Jeopardy game show:

    If photographic memory serves me this company's name was derived from Nippon Kogaku meaning Japanese Optical

    Surprisingly, none of the contestants attempted an answer. I shouted "Nikon!" at the TV, but Alex Trebek didn't hear me.

    I'll add though that it was one of the few questions in the entire game that I could confidently answer!

    But you would have not been correct since your answer wasn't in the form of a question.

    I saw that one, too. Was also surprised that not one of them knew it.
