    you know how the “traditional” forbidden fruit that Adam and Chavah took a “bite” out of was the apple…? and the sign of apple products is a “bitten” apple…? And..the #1 (yes there are others) “aveirah device” is apple products…? (just thinkin)

    And a drioid is similar to an idol. Avodah zara.

    I’m pretty sure blackberries are kosher, though.

    The android symbol reminds me of aphids that I see when I check lettuce.

    How do you quantify that?

    Because clearly, no one in their right mind would use a 24″ desktop monitor when they could use a 5″ phone screen.

    Sam2: of course i know that… but the product is a goyisha product anyway.

    i was thinking there was an insidious hint… im aware theres machlokes plus mystical explanation to what the actual “fruit” was…

    the wolf: the quantity is endless… in our days we must be extremely careful.

    everybody else: hows my “apple chidush”? (i like to know wat ppl think sometimes:)

    What, so your theory is that the creators of Apple had a top secret meeting at midnight in the tallest tower in LA to discuss how they can hint to the fact that Apple’s products are products of the Soton?

    Wow. Just wow.

    In general, most things that have power can be used for good or bad. If something cannot be used for bad, it most likely can’t be used for good either.

    I think you might have misunderstood me. When I asked “How do you quantify that?” what I meant was, what criteria do you use and what methodology do you use to determine that Apple devices are the “#1 aveira device?”

    So what does it mean that you live in NYC, “The Big Apple?”

    “everybody else: hows my “apple chidush”? (i like to know wat ppl think sometimes:)”

    Not such a chidush, unless you’re Rabbi Jonathan Rietti. I heard him say the exact same thing on a Tisha B’Av Chofetz Chaim video a couple of years ago. (I think it was him; I may be wrong. But someone definitely introduced this idea.)

    Barry – I like that 🙂 🙂

    The ‘Apple’ logo has been commented on by many, and what has been alluded to here is the myth that it is based on the biblical ‘fruit of knowledge’.

    Another popular theory is that it represents the apple that Issac Newton observed falling from a tree, as was indeed displayed on the first ever logo.

    And perhaps the most popular myth is that it alludes to the poisoned apple that computer pioneer Alan Turing used to kill himself. All of these were presented to founder Steve Jobs, who dismissed them but says he wishes they were true.

    I heard a different version of why it’s called Apple, but I can’t remember it (I hate when people do that, btw 🙂 ) anyone know of any other reasons/rumors?

    Thanks for the clarification, but that wasn’t quite what I meant. I wasn’t referring to Apple vs. whatever other brand. My question was how do you quantify that a mobile phone (or tablet, or whatever device you’re referring to) is the “#1 aveira device.”

    I remember that Steve Jobs and Wosniack wanted a name that would come alphabetically before ‘Atari’, which was the big computer name at the time.

    WOLF: you cornered me.

    I’m not trying to “corner” you. I’m trying to understand how you came to the conclusion that you did.

    If you simply exaggerated, or spoke without really thinking it through, that’s fine too — I do that sometimes. I just wanted to know how you came to the conclusion that smart phones are the absolute worst things in the world (with regard to doing aveiras).

    “I remember driving down Highway 85,” Wozniak says. “We’re on the freeway, and Steve mentions, ‘I’ve got a name: Apple Computer.’ We kept thinking of other alternatives to that name, and we couldn’t think of anything better.”

    Adds Jobs: “And also remember that I worked at Atari, and it got us ahead of Atari in the phone book.”

    I think we should ban it. An Asifa… Anyone caught using it can not be ?”?, get an Aliya or be an ??. You will not be allowed to daven in Shuls in Meah She’arim, parts of Bnei Brak and KJ…
