Christians from Russia's Orthodox community are demanding that the country's Apple division remove the famous half-bitten apple logo from its products and replace it with a cross, because they find the apple image offensive to their beliefs.
In popular culture, an apple is often used to represent the fruit that Adam and Eve ate from the Tree of Knowledge when tempted by the devil, as found in Genesis 3 in the Bible – although the exact type of fruit is not mentioned in Scripture.
Still, conservative Christians in Russia have insisted that the logo should be removed and replaced with a cross, Xbitlabs.com reported from a translated article from Interfax news agency.
In 2010, Felix Sockwell did a good job fixing the Brazil 2014 logo.
“There are so many things wrong with this logo, but I will agree that its premise, or idea, was OK. Let me take a few minutes to tell you whats wrong with this mark and what I would do to quickly amend it.” — FELIX SOCKWELL

Have you ever wanted to be more persuasive, convincing, or if nothing else, understand how others try to influence you? …Of course! Who hasn’t?
Understanding how storytelling works in persuasion, influence, and change, and the research/neuroscience that informs it all is critical if anyone is going to work with stories effectively.
And hooray -- Gregory Ciotti has put together his list of favorite books that help us understand persuasion, influence, change, and stories more deeply. We'll all become more articulate and better at our craft -- whether you are a consultant, storyteller, entrepreneur or CEO.
Some of these I've read, some I haven't -- so I can't wait to dig into this list myself.
I hope we all learn lots and gain lots of useable insights for our work. Enjoy!
