What does the bitten apple in the Apple Computers logo signify?

Newton - a mind forever voyaging through strange seas of thought...

Last Updated On: Sunday, November 22, 2009

 

The original was a quotation by Wordsworth, inscribed into the logo: ‘Newton - a mind forever voyaging through strange seas of thought’. That was changed by designer Rob Janoff into a multi-coloured bitten apple - the ‘rainbow apple’ - to commemorate the discoveries of gravity (the apple) and separation of light (colours) done by Isaac Newton. Besides, Alan Turing, the father of modern computing, committed suicide using a cyanide-laced apple. In 1997, Steve Jobs decided to replace this apple by a solid one.
