the partnership began in 1976...



**In 1975  Jobs joined a group known as the Homebrew Computer Club. One member, a technical whiz named Steve Wozniak (1950–), was trying to build a small computer. Jobs became fascinated with the marketing potential of such a computer. In 1976 he and Wozniak formed their own company. They called it Apple Computer Company, in memory of a happy summer Jobs had spent picking apples. They raised $1,300 in startup money by selling Jobs's microbus and Wozniak's calculator. At first they sold circuit boards (the boards that hold the internal components of a computer) while they worked on the computer prototype (sample).

Fast forward 30+ years and it's amazing how these two gentlemen changed the era of personal computing, animation and music.  


Steve Jobs truly was a genius and a visionary.....

He definitely left an indelible mark on the world, my ipad2 is my first apple product and I am constantly asking myself what took me so long!

Yes he was. So glad the world had him for the time that we did.
