  ACME
       A Company that Makes Everything (slang)
       
       

Din dicționarul Jargon File (4.3.1, 29 Jun 2001) :

  Acme n. [from Greek `akme', highest point of perfection or achievement]
     The canonical supplier of bizarre, elaborate, and non-functional
     gadgetry - where Rube Goldberg and Heath Robinson (two cartoonists who
     specialized in elaborate contraptions) shop. The name has been
     humorously expanded as A (or American) Company Making Everything. (In
     fact, Acme was a real brand sold from Sears Roebuck catalogs in the
     early 1900s.) Describing some X as an "Acme X" either means "This is
     insanely great", or, more likely, "This looks insanely great on
     paper, but in practice it's really easy to shoot yourself in the foot
     with it." Compare pistol.
  
     This term, specially cherished by American hackers and explained here
     for the benefit of our overseas brethren, comes from the Warner
     Brothers' series of "Roadrunner" cartoons. In these cartoons, the
     famished Wile E. Coyote was forever attempting to catch up with, trap,
     and eat the Roadrunner. His attempts usually involved one or more
     high-technology Rube Goldberg devices - rocket jetpacks, catapults,
     magnetic traps, high-powered slingshots, etc. These were usually
     delivered in large wooden crates labeled prominently with the Acme name
     - which, probably not by coincidence, was the trade name of the
     animation rotation board used by cartoonists since forever. Acme devices
     invariably malfunctioned in improbable and violent ways.
