Prom1 said:I would love to see Jobs & Apple on the very LAST G5 Dual Core high-end PowerMac have one 'signed' ingraving & color (maybe a hint of black & gold; signature in gold, machine metal in BLACK) by Steve Wozniak!
That would be so cool since, I think the cpu that he originally decided to put in the Mac close to a G5 but not too close to the Intel.
That would be incredible. Furthermore since he loves the education system; it would be great to see half of the sale $$ go to a lower blessed school in the USA.
This would be a nice fairwell to the G5 IBM/Motorola-Freescale/Apple PowerPC alliance, and a sweet tribute to Wozniaks brilliance in helping Apple get going to such an amazing start.

dferrara said:I feel like a newbie for asking this, I should really know after all these years, but how did Woz and Steve meet? High-school buddies, or what? Are they still good friends? Do they workout at the same gym, etc.
morespce54 said:That is for sure... well, the "Apple vision" may be from Jobs, but the "Apple well-designed hardware concept" comes from him...
exmacuser said:Watch the Pirates of Silicon Valley or buy Woz's book.
Work out at the same gym, hahaha. It sure wouldn't hurt. He needs to get off that Segway.
Electro Funk said:Did anybody know that Woz and Jobs designed the game Breakout for Atari?
one of the classics!
Wikipedia said:According to Atari Founder Nolan Bushnell, Atari had offered $100 for each chip that was reduced in the machine. Jobs had little interest or knowledge in circuit board design, and made a deal with Wozniak to split the bonus evenly between them if Wozniak could minimize the number of chips. Much to the amazement of Atari, Wozniak reduced the number of chips by 50, a design so tight that it was impossible to reproduce on an assembly line. At the time, Jobs told Wozniak that Atari had only given them $500 (rather than $5000), and that Wozniak's share was thus $250.
Electro Funk said:yes, but during the summer of 1975 Woz invented the Apple-1.... without this there would never have been the macs we buy today
