    i am wondering who said it? is it a famous quote from someone or is it just the apple marketing team?

    it means a lot no matter who said it?

    I'm not really sure, but this site says that Steve Jobs said it.

    Edit: And it looks like that website is wrong.

    It was created by the advertising agency TBWA\Chiat\Day.

    Does it mean a bit less knowing that it was written by a bunch of highly paid Ad executives using cultural manipulation in order to invert the idea of rebellion into one of conform and consume?

    that has answered the question. i just wondered if it was written for the fact of selling something or if it was someone saying something good about apple (or something else, and apple we're using it).

    Thanks people. very interesting.

    The original creator of this phrase is a certain John Appleseed.
