Scott Chu Level 1 Level 1
Last time, I saw this "answered" topic in this forum(Apple - Support - Discussions - Does anyone out there know the meaning ...
http://discussions.apple.com/message.jspa?messageID=3506922). But according to the interview with Apple 2nd logo designer(http://creativebits.org/interview/interviewrob_janoff_designer_applelogo), it's nothing to do with what dicussed in the previous topic thread. However, Janoff still doesn't say the original idea. So, does anyone every heard from somewhere or somebody that Janoff ever talked about his original idea of that "bite"?

    Hello Scott,

    According to this MacWorld article about a Rob Janoff interview it is stated that the "bite" was first, basically, decided upon to differentiate it from the  logo appearing to look like a cherry among other things. Interesting read if you haven't seen it yet.

    Scott,

    It is right there in the interview. See questions 5, 9, & 10. He is most specific in #10: "Anyway, when I explain the real reason why I did the bite it's kind of a let down. But I'll tell you. I designed it with a bite for scale, so people get that it was an apple not a cherry."

    Hi romad,

    I always wanted to believe that it was also , perhaps, to represent Apple taking a big bite out of the "forbidden fruit" or in other words the competition at the time I'm sure the info in the interview is correct but one has to wonder what all was discussed when the logo was in process of design? The scale concept most likely was the real intent of the design at some point but I wonder if savvy folks such as Janoff and Jobs did not think of all the possibilities of how it would be interpreted then and later.

    Hi, LS,

    No, I really believe that they didn't think of the oddball/conspiracy/hidden meanings, etc., that people in the future would try to load on the logo. It is like those that say Procter & Gamble's logo proves they worship the devil.

    (Though my wife does consider all computers to be instruments of the devil!)

    Zombies.

    It represents Steve taking a bite out of your brain.

    The bite in the apple symbolizes the apple from the Garden Of Eden. When Eve, took a bite out of the apple, she gained knowledge of good and evil. The Apple logo says, that you can use all their produces for good or bad. Personally, I think they couldn't have done it better. We shouldn't blame the problems of radiation and social issues on technology but on the holders of these devices. It is in you hands whether you chose to do good or bad with it.

    No, their's was a half green apple photograph, not a multi-colored sriped graphic symbolization.

    Sorry, but I have no idea what you are referring to. Please explain further what "slogan" you are asking about or what "meaning" you are looking for.

    Apples are delicious?

    If beauty is indeed truth, as John Keats claimed, then this story ought to be true: the logo on the back of your iPhone or Mac is a tribute to Alan Turing, the man who laid the foundations for the modern-day computer, pioneered research into artificial intelligence and unlocked German wartime codes.

    His death, a decade after the end of the war, provides the link with Apple. Unrecognized for his work, facing jail for gross indecency and humiliated by estrogen injections intended to 'cure' his homosexuality, he bit into an apple he had laced with cyanide. He died in obscurity on June 7, 1954, 10 years and a day after the Normandy landings, which made copious use of intelligence gleaned by his methods.

    I cut this from a CNN site I've known of this story for some time.

    Never heard anything more asinine; though I shouldn't be surprised with CNN as the source!
