Peeking inside a book bin at a Seattle Goodwill, Redditor vadermeer caught an interesting, unexpected glimpse into the early days of Apple: a cache of internal memos, progress reports, and legal pad scribbles from 1979 and 1980, just three years into the tech monolith’s company history.
It’s been 40 years since Apple was founded, and by now, the story is a Silicon Valley legend: Two friends, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, built a multi-billion dollar empire right out of their parent’s garage. But what most people don’t know was that there was actually a third person critical to Apple’s origin.
Lesser-known Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak recently sat down with Reddit for a video interview, and a more traditional AMA. Among the nuggets of wisdom: the Apple Watch lineup is “too complicated”, and Apple’s garage origins is partly a myth.
Steve Wozniak appeared on Conan last night and predictably gave his take on the ongoing battle between Apple and the FBI. Perhaps unsurprisingly as a founding figure of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, he sides with Apple.
Comic Con is headed to Tokyo, courtesy of Steve Wozniak. It’s the first time the convention will ever be held in Japan, and it’s planned for December 2016.

Today there’s a new trailer for the other other other Steve Jobs movie, the one starring Michael Fassbender. But this trailer gives us the first real look at Seth Rogen as Woz... and damned if I’m not going to see this movie just to watch him.
One woman’s trash is literally everyone else’s super-expensive, rare $200,000 piece of computer history. Most of the time, recycled electronics are too crappy to sell on Craigslist. But one California e-recycling center recently received one of the most coveted gadgets ever: A genuine Apple-1 computer.
Last month Madame Tussauds asked you, the American public, which tech icon should be the next to be depicted in wax. Competition was stiff among the ten nominees, with everyone from Elon Musk to George Lucas in the running. But the American public has decided, nay, demanded: WE MUST HAVE A WAX WOZ!
It's almost hard to believe it's actually happening, considering Sony's Steve Jobs movie seemed like such a total clusterfuck.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of BASIC, Steve Wozniak has written some memories about his first experiences with this popular language—and how he created his own BASIC from scratch for the Apple I and Apple II computers. An incredible feat. Enjoy!—JD
Steve Wozniak just sent this fun stunt caught on video a few years ago: Watch him deliver a Mac to Emma, a girl who freaks out when she realizes her idol is at the door carrying her new computer. As Emma's father says in the video: "This is like having your lightbulbs delivered by Thomas Edison." He's totally right. …
