Steve Jobs turned Eve's apple, the symbol of fallen humankind, into a religious icon for true believers in technology. But can salvation be downloaded?

From what I have read, he idolized (for lack of a better word) the beatles and used the apple from their recording studio. In fact, I believe there were some lawsuits regarding that...IIRC

Yeah. They got it wrong on the apple. Everyone who has followed Apple Co. knows it is from the apple that fell on Issac Newton. They even named a computer after Newton.

It's about thinking. Which is what brought Newton to believe the Law of gravity. If I remember right from school. Lol! Many Moons ago!

The bitten apple is after the Apple hit Newton under the tree, he took a bite of it. That is what the symbol is about.

Then he thought about why that happen. Thus the Law of gravity. It shows you how these reporters of today do not do there homework. He presumed it was from the biblical account of the apple by Adam and Eve.
