Apple’s relationship with the public was no joke.
Its apple-shaped logo, for example, became an iconic symbol of the tech company.
Its cartoon face became a common icon on the covers of magazines, movies and other media.
Apple’s trademark on the apple logo was a trademark in its heyday, and its apple-flavored iced coffee was ubiquitous.
It had a very long and storied history.
But that history didn’t end there.
A lot of the iconic images of Apple were also created by cartoonists.
The company had cartoon characters named after it.
In the early 1950s, Apple’s famous “I love you” greeting appeared on a Macintosh computer, and that image has been in use ever since.
Today, Apple has more than 100 different characters of different sizes, colors and personalities.
The story goes that one day, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs asked one of his employees, Joe, to make a logo for the new Macintosh.
“He said, ‘Why don’t you do something really, really silly and cartoonish?’ and Joe made the logo, which was, like, just a drawing of the apple and the mouth of a cartoon apple,” Apple historian Joe A. Tullos told CNNMoney.
The Macintosh logo was one of many early examples of a logo that looked like it was from a movie.
“It’s like the Pixar movie that Pixar is so good at making,” said John Gruber, an Apple historian and the author of the book “The Art of Mac: An Insider’s Guide to the World’s Most Popular Computer.”
But even though Apple was known for its cartoon-inspired logo, the company was also a major player in the world of digital marketing.
Apple created the first social media accounts, and the company also pioneered the “Twitter” social network in 1995.
Today the company has more Twitter followers than Facebook.
And its app store has been downloaded more than 200 million times.
Apple even created the Apple Store, which offered discounts and other special offers to its customers.
It wasn’t all fun and games in those days, however.
In 1962, Apple faced lawsuits from a group of shareholders who claimed that the company had misled investors and consumers about the health and longevity of the company.
At the time, Apple had been hit with a lawsuit from the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) alleging that it was “an unlawful participant in a scheme to defraud investors in its common stock.”
Apple settled the case in 1985, but the company didn’t get back to the investors for more than a decade.
“The real question is: Why would Apple settle, and not go back to court?”
The SEC settled with Apple in 1991, after the company admitted to misleading investors about the quality of its products.
“Apple didn’t do a great job of explaining to the public how it’s doing the things it does,” said Kevin Smith, an investor at Cumberland Advisors.
The settlement made Apple a “major player in online marketing,” Tulls said.
“They did the best they could.”
But as the company matured and its technology evolved, the Apple brand became tarnished.
In 2008, the firm agreed to pay $8.4 billion to settle a class-action lawsuit that accused the company of deceptive practices and deceptive acts.
But it’s not just the Apple logo that is tarnished, either.
The iconic red, white and blue logo that debuted in 1971 was taken off the Apple products that year.
Apple did not acknowledge the trademark change until 2012, and it wasn’t until 2014 that the brand was changed to “Apple” again.
Apple said at the time that the logo was changed because it was used in a product called the “iPhone.”
In 2014, Apple added the “i” to the logo to signify “internet” and to the left of the “I.”
But critics were not happy with the logo.
“This logo is like an early version of the ’90s.
I think it’s just an early iteration,” Tully said.
Many users have complained that the new logo doesn’t accurately represent the company’s “modern, digital, digital” look.
The redesigned logo also contains a white dot that looks like a “V” that looks a lot like the “V,” according to some people.
Apple also has faced other lawsuits over the years.
In 2004, Apple paid $15.5 billion to resolve a lawsuit alleging that the firm deceived investors in a marketing campaign.
But the case was thrown out because of a lack of evidence.
The case was later settled out of court.
The most recent case against Apple involved a 2010 class-actions lawsuit that was dismissed by a federal judge in California.
“We are very happy that we settled this case,” Apple said in a statement at the year’s end.
“In the course of our ongoing business, we have made significant strides in the area of privacy and consumer rights.”
