Products made by Apple don’t have a direct off switch because Steve Jobs was afraid of death

How he explains it is that often times he would question himself about the afterlife, thinking that the wisdom you’ve accumulated carries on, somehow not just ending. But he didn’t like to imagine it as an “on/off switch” that once it is off, you are gone.

Also, the Macintosh was named for a variety of real apple: Steve Jobs is said to have tried to change the project’s name to 'Bicycle' while the McIntosh-loving staffer was out of office.
