apple
Apple (Heb. tappuah, meaning "fragrance"). Probably the apricot or quince is intended by the word, as Palestine was too hot for the growth of apples proper. It is enumerated among the most valuable trees of Palestine (Joel 1:12), and frequently referred to in Canticles, and noted for its beauty (2:3, 5; 8:5). There is nothing to show that it was the "tree of the knowledge of good and evil." Dr. Tristram has suggested that the apricot has better claims than any other fruit-tree to be the apple of Scripture. It grows to a height of 30 feet, has a roundish mass of glossy leaves, and bears an orange coloured fruit that gives out a delicious perfume. The "apple of the eye" is the Heb. _ishon_, meaning manikin, i.e., the pupil of the eye (Prov. 7:2). (Comp. the promise, Zech. 2:8; the prayer, Ps. 17:8; and its fulfilment, Deut. 32:10.) The so-called "apple of Sodom" some have supposed to be the Solanum sanctum (Heb. hedek), rendered "brier" (q.v.) in Micah 7:4, a thorny plant bearing fruit like the potato-apple. This shrub abounds in the Jordan valley. (See {ENGEDI}.)

"the other side of the computer landscape is a company that keeps design at a high priority. the original apple logo was multicolored, sure, but the apple shape is distinct and classic and can be translated easily into two-color presentation. the apple icon is also one of the few logos out there that don't need a logotype to explain what it is. the company distributes its white apple icon window stickers to its customers because it speaks for itself. the logo is successful on all fronts including representation. though it doesn't have a computer connotation, the original concept of apple was computers designed for education and the apple is a perfect embodiment of that."
