Apple

Long before the iPhone or even the Mac, Apple was a handful of people working in an industry that was only just beginning to take the idea of personal computing seriously. In the earliest days of those early days, Steves Wozniak and Jobs made their first device together: the Apple I. Few of these were sold, and fewer still survive - but the Living Computers museum in Seattle managed to get three. And one of them was Jobs' personal machine.

If I ever go to the US again, visiting some of the great computer museums is definitely high on the list. I'd love to actually see an Apple I - especially Steve Jobs' - in real life.

The CHM was a great visit. I'd like to go back some day.

While its good that computer is in a good place now, I don't think I'm allowed to grab things that belong to my company that are in fired executive's offices when they leave.


Or is it? Man, I could of had some primo stuff otherwise. I mean UN Declaration commemorations, cool plaques from the Olympic committee. Typewriters from yester year. Old DEC/Sun equipment. And other really cool things I can't describe for fear of further revealing who I've worked for.

What surprises me the most was he actually kept it until his death. Most folks would have gotten rid of it long ago, or sold it to a collector for mucho-buckos. Fortunately, Jobs was always rich enough to not be tempted into selling it.

He didn't keep it. He left it behind when the board pushed him out.
