Do you know that this was Apple Inc’s very first company logo?
The logo featured Isaac Newton sitting under the apple tree where he supposedly discovered gravity when an apple fell on his head. Around the borders went the words “Newton — ‘A Mind Forever Voyaging Through Strange Seas of Thought — Alone.’”
The logo was drawn by then co-founder Ronald Wayne (the guy infamous for giving up his 10% share of the company for $800, and then forfeiting the right to any future claims against Apple for an additional $1,500). According to this June 2010 article (Apple was trading at U$332 per share then), his worth could have been at least U$22 billion ! Apple last traded on 30 Aug 2011 at U$390, I can only feel sorry for Ronald Wayne .
