1976 Apple I Computer: The legacy of perhaps the most innovative and successful entrepreneur, the late Steve Jobs was revisited in the month of June this year, when the original 1976 Apple I Computer was sold for a staggering 374,000$.
This original Apple computer (Apple I) is one of about 200 first generation systems assembled in 1976 by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ron Wayne. A woman dropped off the computer at Clean Bay area, a recycling center in Silicon Valley, which then sold the rare computer to a private collector for $200,000. The company is attempting to find the donor to give her 50% of the profit.
When Apple first started making computers back in 1976, they were made from Steve Jobs’s garage and built by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, and one of their first computers was the Apple 1, of which 200 were made and they were sold for USD 666.66 each.
In the year of the nation's bicentennial, the Apple I was born. Each one was built by hand by Steve Wozniak and sold for $666.66. About 200 were made and Steve Jobs sold his VW bus to finance the effort.
A big part of starting a company is convincing people to believe in you before they probably should.When Steve Jobs founded Apple, he had no money and no customers; what he did next is the hallmark of a great entrepreneur. First he convinced a local computer store to order his non-existent Apple computers, with payment on delivery.
L'Apple I rappresenta il primo di una lunga serie di computer commercializzati da quella che oggi è una delle maggiori aziende informatiche del pianeta. Concepito da Steve Wozniak e Steve Jobs e progettato da Wozniak, l'Apple I fu presentato nell'aprile 1976 all'Homebrew Computer Club di Palo Alto (California, USA), e fu commercializzato dal luglio 1976 all'agosto 1977 inizialmente al costo di 666,66 dollari, per una produzione complessiva di circa 200 esemplari. fonte wikipedia
If you’ve ever wanted to own a piece of Apple history, you will soon have a chance to fulfill that wish: one of the first-ever Apple computers is being auctioned off by Christie’s with an estimated price of $160,000 to $240,000. The Apple I, hand-assembled by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and released in 1976, originally sold for the somewhat demonic price of $666.66 – around $2500 in today’s dollars. It is widely credited as the machine that ushered in the era of the personal computer.
It’s difficult to imagine our world today without computers. Of course, they have been around since World War Two, but they were clunky, massively expensive things that had all the calculating power of a brick. When Steve Wozniak and Stephen Jobs introduced the Apple in 1976, however, it changed everything and the rest is, as they say, history. Today, of course, they are everywhere and we have become so dependent upon them that many people almost feel naked without one. For some, they e...
So many of today’s creative, technical, and cultural talent are, in one way or another, indebted to the little machine that plugged into the living room telly. We’re celebrating the Spectrum’s anniversary in HORIZONS, at the BFI: a rich blend of fun, memories, and future-gazing. Play some of your favourite games (you’re welcome to bring your Kempston interface and Quickshot II).
The first games console I was bought. A Sinclair ZX Spectrum 48k. You had to wait ten minutes for games on cassettes to load. The sudden crash/reset nature of a failed load used to freak me out to such an extent I ran and hid until I was sure enough time had passed to go and see if the game had loaded.
