The history about the name of Apple Inc. is Steve gave his team members one day's time to think about a good name of his company otherwise he will put the company name A for Apple. He got many names at the end of the day but didn't like any one. So next day he named his company Apple.

There are various stories as to why the Apple name was adopted. Some say that it was just a name that did not sound like a techno geeky computer name. Steve Jobs has said that he was on a fruit only diet and declared that if no one came up with a better name he would call the company Apple. No one came up with a better name so it became Apple. Steve Jobs could not call it Apple because The Beatles already had the brand name Apple on there records, and the business name as well. It was taken to the high court in London and Steve jobs liked the name Apple as well as The Beatles. It was settled and Steve Jobs paid 26.5 million dollars to the Beatles company. It did not stop there he had further brushes with The Beatles company about iTunes.

Did iTunes steal the Apple logo from the Beatles?

Apple Inc. was reputedly named after Apple Corps, as a kind of tribute. The two are separate businesses. Apple Corps did sue Apple Inc. over trademarking, after Apple Inc. created iTunes; Apple Inc. had previously agreed not to sell music, which was the domain of Apple Corps. Apple Corps lost in court, but the two companies patched things up afterwards. After the original court decision, Apple Computers created a "sound" for its computers called "Sosumi" which, if pronounced slowly, sounds like "So Sue Me". MP
