Apple Computers

There are a lot of rumors about how the Apple received it’s name, I’ve heard it was because the first apples used a wooden apple create for the case, to reference to Sir Isaac Newton and even a reference to the apple from Adam and Eve. however. Writing in his 2006 book Apple’s co-founder Steve Wozniak explains it this way:

“It was a couple of weeks later when we came up with a name for the partnership. I remember I was driving Steve Jobs back from the airport along Highway 85. Steve was coming back from a visit to Oregon to a place he called an “apple orchard.” It was actually some kind of commune. Steve suggested a name – Apple Computer. The first comment out of my mouth was, “What about Apple Records?” This was (and still is) the Beatles-owned record label. We both tried to come up with technical-sounding names that were better, but we couldn’t think of any good ones. Apple was so much better, better than any other name we could think of.”

For many this was the computer that started it all. Owning the Apple II was the dream of any true geek. Today the Apple Macintosh is the cream of the crop for high end graphic users who can afford them.

Apple has released their early software into the public-domain. Download Macintosh Disk Images or Apple & Macintosh Software.
