Should I really write something about Apple Computer? One of those
smallish (initially, that is) hacker companies, started by Steve Jobs
and Steve Wozniak to sell their garage-made Apple computer (for $666,
in fact). The result: the world's most collectible, most valuable
The side-effect: an excellent line of machines with great hack-value (the Apple
II series, that is). This is a historic company with legendary people — the
two 6502 hackers whose work was imitated even by IBM itself.
