    I've been registered on this site for over two years and was a lurker before that. Something I just noticed about the MacRumors logo. Do you see it? The right side of the apple forms a question mark. That was genius!

    I kept staring at it and thinking, "something is weird with that logo". Yeah, I must be a bit slow in my old age.

    Hah ya. It comes up from time to time, people just noticing it. Apparently it's more hidden than was originally intended.

    Great logo nonetheless, but yeah, took me a while too. Great thing about the Internet: you're never the only one. ;)

    Yep, this will forever change the way I see that logo. Maybe I should have remained silent..

    4 years here and it never clicked for me. Now it seems impossible to miss. Excellently designed logo.

    I've been a member for nearly 10 years and I never noticed it either. Now I've had it pointed out, I don't know how I missed it for all those years!

    It was one of those things that I noticed fairly early on. At the same time there are other things that I've always seen and have never noticed something about them until someone points it out or I read/hear about it somewhere.

    That's cool for you to only be noticing now. The very first thing I noticed was the logo. Thought it was one of the best designed logos for a site. It so fits.

    I probably noticed it about a year or two ago, and I've been around for a while...

    Come to think of it, that stem looks a bit suspicious too…

    Alright, maybe that's a bit of a stretch.

    Yeah, I looked at that because I had never seen a blue stem on an apple, but I couldn't see anything there.

    And that green leaf is clearly Donald Trump's hair!

    The fact that it's green fools nobody. :D

    Hahahaha, speaking of that... I used to see a face in there. At least the eyebrows, eyes, and mouth, where the seeds are.

    That is really subtle that it's very cool. I consciously never notices, but may subconsciously did. :p

    Well, until I clicked on the thread this evening, I must confess that I have to count myself among those who have never noticed it until now. And, in common with a few others - such as @mobilehaathi and @Phil A. - not only did I not notice it when I joined the forum the best part of eight years ago, but I never even noticed it until I read this thread this evening.

    Terrific design, though.

    I'm not sure who is responsible for the design, but it was, indeed, genius.
