This is the sticker your iPad was made for: The iconic rainbow-colored Apple designed by Rob Janoff back in 1976, reproduced in self-adhesive vinyl.
Due to all that battery packed inside the iPad’s slim frame, no light reaches the rear case, so we are deprived of the glowing apple found on the lids of MacBooks. The black plastic apple that sits there instead provides a welcome textural difference for the fingers to fondle while reading, but it lacks glitz. Still, it’s a lot better that the almost impossibly lame original Apple logo, which featured ragged scrolls and a picture of Isaac Newton under an apple tree. That logo, swiftly replaced, would have looked more at home on a Lynyrd Skynyrd album cover than on a piece of consumer electronics.
This multi-hued sticker will cost you just $3.50 from the Etsy store. If you buy any other, larger vinyl design from the same seller’s store, they’ll throw this one in free. Not bad. If Apple was in any way nostalgia-minded, it should include these stickers in the boxes of its products instead of those awful, thin white stickers that we throw away by their thousands every day. Or worse, find stuck on the back of a Toyota Prius, like I saw once on a visit to – you guessed it – San Francisco.
