Speaking of rumours, a recent report by Macrumors suggests that Apple may be up to something. While this is a subtle rumour, it is enough to get us excited. According to the report, an anonymous source has reported that Apple may be introducing its new products with a revamped Apple Logo. The Apple Logo was changed back in 2007 to what it looks like now. Before, it was even multicoloured at one point. That was perhaps the best and most famous one, making it the most recognised one for the trillion dollar company.
It was this Logo that is the centre of attention for this report. According to the anonymous tipper for Macrumors, Apple would be boasting the retro logo on its upcoming devices. While it is true that this is still a rumour, it would be quite cool to flaunt it on a device.
Apple has been known to introduce special edition devices. The Product red devices such as the iPods and the iPhones were quite popular. While both these products were targets of being special editions, Apple never did anything to its Mac lineup. This time around, therefore, I believe the Macs would be targeted. There are a couple of reasons why I believe that.
Firstly, the time this logo was introduced was back in 1977 with the Apple II. With the new Mac Pros coming out, this could be paying some serious homage to the original product. Not only that, Macs have never been revamped in this way, with a special edition one not existing.
Another reason that may make sense would be the increase in the success of Gay Pride. Apple has been one of the most active supporter of Gay Pride and coincidentally enough, these are complemented by the colours of the Rainbow. The retro Apple logo screams Gay Pride in that sense.
While romanticising about the concept does paint quite the picture. Even people who might not be Apple fans today would be scratching their geek bone to be excited about this. Sadly though, this is all limited to a hollow rumour which may not even pan out so well. We might not even see the logo or even a special edition mac (ever). All of this may be just a rumour to peak our interests but we are all techies. This is what we do, we get excited about what we desire the most.
