    I always thought that it was a tribute to Alan Turing who pretty much invented the ideas of computation and algorithms (without him and his help with Enigma etc., the second world war may also have had a rather worse outcome). He commited suicide by eating a poisoned apple after disgraceful state persecution due to his sexuality (hence the rainbow colour of the apple).

    Regards,
    Yeah, you're right. Just found out about it on Wikipedia.

    Thanks.

    It's very sad.
