    Exactly. You'll notice that the image you're seeing is the reverse of a normal Apple logo, because the light is shining through from the back.

    You also cannot burn an image into an LCD display.

    Actually, that's not entirely true, at least in my own experience. We use LCD's exclusively at my office, and a few of them remain on 24/7 with certain images that are unchanging. If the image is moved and a neutral background is present, you can see faintly where the image was.
