While doing some research I came across an article that describes how Apple got its name. Apparently, Steve Jobs was a fruitarian at the time and threatened to call the company "Apple Computer" unless someone could come up with a better name by the end of the day, but no one did..
Steve Jobs on naming Apple.
I was actually a fruitarian at that point in time. I ate only fruit. Now I'm a garbage can like everyone else. And we were about three months late in filing a fictitious business name so I threatened to call the company Apple Computer unless someone suggested a more interesting name by five o'clock that day. Hoping to stimulate creativity. And it stuck. And that's why we're called Apple.
