Technology History: Apple Computer Company

The Apple Computer Company was "born" on April 1, 1975. Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs designed the first Apple computer in Jobs' home. Steven Jobs was able to convince a local electronic retailer to order twenty-five Apple I computers. In order to raise the capital needed to make these machines, Jobs sold his Volkswagen microbus and Wozniak sold his HP scientific calculator, enabling them to raise $1,300.00. The rest, as they say, is history!
