Picking A Name Is As Simple As Picking Apples:
Steve Jobs was on a fruitarian diet and he picked apples at the One Brand Farm which was a hippy commune. Apple Computer was a smart choice as a name because it was friendly, and simple. It was counter-culture, and nothing could be more American. Apples and Computers don’t go together so it got people thinking.
This is an analysis based on Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson and other sources of research. Enjoy.
