Some people have associated the bitten apple with the story of Adam and Eve's eating of the forbidden fruit. Others have associated it with Alan Turing, the famous computer expert who committed suicide by taking a bite from a poisoned apple. However, the logo's designer denies that either of these served as an inspiration for his work. He merely took his inspiration from the company's name.
