    I am searching for a tidbit of Apple's history that I cannot seem to find. I would like to know if there is a reasoning behind the fact that the first "apple" logo was a rainbow, and not some specific solid color (as it now exists). I have been searchingn the web for a while and cannot seem to find any explanation. I dont know if any exists, but I'm just curious. Thanks to all those who help!

    PS I know the apple-with-the-bite wasn't Apple's first logo
    PPS I found out an interesting bit about the paying homage to Alan Turing

    A found a history of the apple logo at http://www.macnyt.dk/. It says this about the stripes:

    The articles are from 2002, and can be found at the following links (note that I have provided links to every page because the links on the site no longer work)
