    I also have heard many stories about the apple logo, the bite is to show scale.

    The best one I heard is that the brand is giving a nod towards Alan Turing, who is credit with creating the first computer to crack the Enigma Machine. He killed himself with cyanide and when his body was found there was an half eaten apple next to him?

    yes. here is one more

    A rumor behind apple's logo being that Steve Jobs having worked in apple orchards in Oregon and stuck for another name decided to name it after his favorite brand of apples, McIntosh apples. It is spelt differently to the way Apple spell Macintosh for whatever reason, but this seems to be recognized as the most likely origins.
