Woz…how do you make a computer…so helpful to a human. Needed an affordable machine. Sit down, turn it on, and type in a computer language. Buy and use it like a typewriter. Miracle really happened. Press got on to it. Couldn’t buy that kind of advertising. How do you make it simple. Made it open, easy to tinker with.
“Every day is a special day”…how many things last 30 years…
Started first dial-a-joke! Computers were intimidating…How do you make it so simple that an ordinary person would know what to do. Mike Markula the key guy who put up $250k.
After something like Apple, how do you do something else? Hadn’t started Apple to make money. Judges high school robotics. You want to solve a puzzle. Getting better and better at it. Coming up with all these little tricks. Needed 4k of memory to run Fortran. Best thing, I had very limited resources. Had to find the best way in the world. Had all the little elements.
Apple is a monopoly to people who are going to buy a Mac!
Remarkable conversation..hand wrote the OS, couldn’t afford the assembler language terminal.
