The original Apple Computer logo (pic 1), depicting Isaac Newton sitting below an apple tree. The logo was designed by Apple co-founder Ronald Wayne. This logo was only used for one year (1976-77).

In 1977 it was replaced by the "rainbow" logo (pic 2), which was in use for 21 years. This logo, famously, became the subject of a long-running trademark dispute with the Beatles who also used an apple logo. The lawsuit was settled in 2007.

It's based on a picture from the BBC news.

Wick is a town in the far north east corner of the , in .

When the movie (John Wick) was released the name Wick was trending worldwide (Birdsite) with hundreds of thousands of mentions.

I wasn't aware of the movie and couldn't imagine what was going on in this small Highland town to make it so newsworthy. 😃

John Wick (2014)

A former hitman comes out of retirement to seek revenge on an organised crime family, after he is savagely beaten, his car is stolen & they kill his dog.

Keanu Reeves stars as a (hit)man of few words, but many actions. It is almost like watching a ballet, except there is a pounding rock score and the dancing kills people.

The film shares a lot in common with the Bourne films starring Matt Damon.

Recommended if you want some daft escapism.
