Best Answer

Steve Jobs worked summer jobs at a California apple farm. He also liked The Beatles and their label, Apple Records.

When he and Steve Wozniak tried to come up with a company name, they decided that if they couldn't think of anything better by the end of the day, they'd go with the name "Apple." And they couldn't, so they did.

Apple Computers was founded on April 1, 1976.

The fact that the company was called "Apple", and that they manufactured computers, came about the name Apple Computer.

As of 2008, they are no longer referred to as Apple Computer, their new name is 'Apple Inc." short for, Apple Incorporated.

Steve Jobs worked in a Macintosh Apple orchard as a kid.
