Where does IBM come from?
IBM was founded in 1911 as a manufacturing company called the Computing-Tabulating-Recording Company (CTR). It was renamed International Business Machines, or IBM, in 1924. Throughout its history, IBM helped pioneer computer technologies, from punched cards in the early 20th century to word processors and microprocessors in the late 20th century.
While IBM lost some of its relevance in the 2000s with the rise of Google and Apple, it made a big splash in 2011 with IBM Watson. This was a computer system that could answer questions in natural language. It notably vanquished game show legend Ken Jennings on the trivia show Jeopardy! in 2011.
In the 1990s, IBM emerged as a humorous acronym for itty beat meat. This had nothing to do with any sort of beef or poultry, but mocked a man who was, well, far from well-endowed. Meat, here, is slang for “penis.”
Hur so true ;p RT @MagnaFartlet: IBM 1. n. prop. A large computer company. 2. abbrev. Itty Bitty Meat. A small penis.

Who uses IBM?
Despite its rich and influential history, IBM is sometimes mocked as a technology company behind the times. But, it still employs hundreds of thousands of people—and try playing some of your favorite video games without the processors it provides for leading game consoles.
As for that other meaning … IBM is an occasional but bro-ish insult, given the male fetishization of big penises. It’s usually used playfully … and immaturely.
Why you worried about how a chick look without makeup? Y’all should be worried about how small your DICK IS BEFORE YOU’RE HARD, Hell It’s probably smaller when it’s hard🤭🤷🏽♀️😂. #IttyBittyMeat
