1. I guess I'm in the minority on this, but I'm happy with explanations along the lines of the color bars. I'm not sure whether that's because I've been writing fiction since discovering AppleWorks & MultiScribe as a 13-year-old in 1990, or in spite of it!

    According to that interview, Janoff designed the color bars as one of the original three options for the two apple shapes. IMHO, the artist was the one showing insight & design genius — not the guy that just picked 2 out of 3 existing thoughtful designs. :)

    Also, I thought you might find it interesting to know that recent reviews of the evidence strongly suggests that Turing's death was accidental — the BBC ran an interesting article on it recently:
