The original Apple logo featuring Isaac Newton and a poem was quite different than the minimalist Apple logo of today. The words around the border read “Newton – a mind forever voyaging through strange seas of thought…alone.” which is quoted from a William Wordsworth poem.

The old logo is cool in a sort of J.R.R. Tolkien hobbity kind of way, but can you imagine that large busy logo on the back of a MacBook or your iPhone? Would there have been a key sequence to type the Apple logo if it still looked like that? No wonder they changed it to the more simplified  right?
