Ap­ple com­put­ers

Amateur Gardening - - A Gardener’s Miscellany -

Ac­cord­ing to the late Steve Jobs, founder of Ap­ple Inc, the com­pany’s name was in­spired by a visit to an ap­ple farm; he con­sid­ered the name ‘Ap­ple’ to be “fun, spir­ited and not in­tim­i­dat­ing”.

The best-sell­ing Ap­ple Mac desk­top com­puter was named af­ter the ‘McIn­tosh’ ap­ple (pic­tured), which is re­garded as the na­tional ap­ple of Canada. Jef Raskin, head of the team that cre­ated the com­puter, re­garded this va­ri­ety as his favourite, so named the prod­uct af­ter it.
