Apple’s selling wasn’t always a sleek, silvery-grey event it is currently – indeed, there was a time when it detonate with colour. And now we can possess a rainbow-hued square of Apple history, as a selected 1978 sell pointer is adult for grabs in an online auction finale in dual days. All we need to do is make a smallest bid of $20,000. Easy.
The pointer simply facilities a difference ‘apple computer’ (all reduce case) next a hulk Apple logo. Whether prismatic or plain black, Apple’s symbol is unmistakable. No consternation it’s one of a best logos of all time.
