Adam Schoolsky’s Apple 1 Video

The Apple 1 historical microcomputer sold at Christie’s Auction in London on November 23, 2010 was probably the first time such an item was sold at Christie’s. It was a brilliant idea for the seller of the Apple 1 to use a company with such a high international profile and reputation. It was brilliant if the street talk is true that the seller had purchased the some computer on Ebay a year or so earlier for ,000. WOW what a great investment to go from ,000 to 3,000 in less than 2 years. The Apple 1 sold at Christie’s was in good condition and good documentation including an original letter signed by Steve Jobs. The computer board was not all original as it had a replacement microprocessor chip from the 1980’s installed. To me this seems important however it sure did not keep the bidding from going to high values and more than one bidder. The starting bidding moved up rather fast to the final price of 3,000. Does anyone have a idea how many bidders were involved ? Please leave a comment if you know.

Steve Wozniak was offered first class airfare to come and be part of the auction. I understand he only heard about the offer a day or two before the event and had to make a quick trip. He did enjoy the experience and you can hear his story at this site

The publicity after the auction was almost as much before the sale – I guess not many thought the price range suggested by Chistie’s would be correct.

Their are many comments on the web about the Christie’s auction of the Apple 1 and if you have more interest just do a Google search “Apple 1 sold at Christie’s” and you fine plenty to read. For more about our microcomputer collection see for_sale_by_owner

Amazing Facts About Apple Inc & Steve Jobs

Amazing Facts About Apple Inc & Steve Jobs
Apple has became one of the world’s top corporations, generating billions of dollars annually,
providing jobs worldwide, introducing astonishing new technologies and products.

Apple’s rise to power has been an up and down battle of mega proportions, they’ve had to go up against fierce competitors, government regulations, and more.

However, when all is said and done, Apple still is a leader in innovation and originality. So let’s look at some of the fun facts about Apple.

The name ‘Apple’ came from founder Steve Jobs’ like of the fruit. Mystery surrounded the reason for the name Apple, but in truth it was just the fruit that Jobs’ liked and named the company after that.

Once, Steve Jobs started believing that he wouldn’t need to get a bath for he ate too many apples but after a few days, everybody around him started telling him about his body’s bad smell. At first, he wouldn’t believe them but later he got the point.

Steve Wozniak still works for Apple inactively and gets a salary of 120,000 USD per annum.

Steve Jobs is one of the very few to have many movies featuring his life story and many books written on him.

Tim Cook used to work for IBM before getting into Apple. He’s the real reason Apple had shook hands with its old enemy, IBM last year for its enterprise apps.

Apple’s first logo was made by its third co-founder Ronald Wayne. company logo featured a drawing of the father of physics, Sir Isaac Newton.
Jobs used to wear a 1000 USD Porsche watch and used to gift to anyone who appreciated its design.
After a few minutes, he would have a new piece of the same watch on his wrist again.

Tim Cook is the one of the most valuable CEOs upto date. He’s one of the best the world has even seen.

Tim Cook offered his own portion of liver to Steve Jobs. Jobs refused accepting it.

Jobs was interested in buying Yahoo and never was really interested into entering the TV world.

Apple has more money in hands than the US Government. In fact, Apple has twice as much as operating cash than the US Treasury.

Steve Jobs changed his style of glasses after being fired from Apple to match the style of one of his inspirations none other than Mahatma Gandhi.
He made the switch of his glasses to the rimless Lunor Ideal i 380 model. He also thought of Mohandas K. Gandhi to be the Person of the Century.

The first iPod from Apple came with an Easter egg game which could be accessed if the right combinations of keys were pressed.

Smoking near a Mac may void its warranty. As ridiculous as it sounds, but if you smoke while using an Apple computer, you void the warranty – you’ve been warned!

In Apple ads, the time on the products is always set to 9:41. This was the time when Steve Jobs unveiled the iPhone.

If you went back in time to 1991 just to buy the parts that would make an iPhone, it would cost you more than m. The RAM alone would cost you around .44m.

In the first quarter of 2014, Apple made more money than Facebook, Google and Amazon combined.

If Apple goes out for shopping, it can buy like Netflix, Twitter, Tesla, Facebook, Motorola and Nvidia while still being the world’s most valuable company.

If Apple was a country, it would be the world’s 27th largest country, between Venezuela and Belgium.

In 1983, Apple launched its Lisa line of computers. It failed. Word is that around 2,700 of the devices are buried in a landfill in Utah.

Apple was the first to make a digital color camera.

The name iPod was inspired by the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Apple’s cash on hand, around 5 billion, could give everyone in the US, 0.00!

Even with an estimated net worth of billion, for the last 15 years with the company, CEO Steve Jobs was only paid so he could qualify for the company’s health benefits.

Atari Computers Then Along Came Atari TV Commercial (1986)

Atari Computers Then Along Came Atari TV Commercial (1986) – Atari pitches their ST brand of computers with a catchy parody jingle in this classic 80’s TV spot from Atari.

The Atari ST is a line of home computers from Atari Corporation and the successor to the Atari 8-bit family. The first ST model, the 520ST, was released in June 1985. “ST” officially stands for “Sixteen/Thirty-two”, which referred to the Motorola 68000’s 16-bit external bus and 32-bit internals. The Atari ST is the first personal computer to come with a bit-mapped color GUI, using a version of Digital Research’s GEM released in February 1985. The 1040ST, released in 1986, is the first personal computer to ship with a megabyte of RAM in the base configuration and also the first with a cost-per-kilobyte of less than USD.

The song being parodied in this commercial was “Along Came Mary” by The Association.

Microsoft Surface Phone vs. Apple iPhone 8: Which Will Win?

Microsoft Surface Phone vs. Apple iPhone 8: Which Will Win?
Microsoft Surface Phone vs. Apple iPhone 8: Which Will Win?

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is building a new smartphone, called the Surface Phone, to challenge Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) in the premium handsets market, according to reports.

Apple needs a hit smartphone as sales of iPhone continue to decline. For the first time in April 2016, the tech giant reported a decline in iPhone sales. It has been losing its share in the smartphone operating system market to Android-powered devices. The company faces a stiff competition in both international and the U.S. markets from Samsung, Huawei, Lenovo, and Xiaomi.

Microsoft impressed tech world and fans with its Surface devices including Surface Studio. The Surface family has laptops, tablets, all-in-one computers, and the only thing the brand is missing is a smartphone. So, rumors suggest that the Redmond might unveil the Surface Phone this year. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella in December hinted that the company is working on “the ultimate mobile device.”

The iPhone 8 is also a hot topic these days. Report from reliable sources indicates that the iPhone 8 with a radical redesign will be unveiled in September. It is expected to feature wireless charging, edge-to-edge OLED display, and cutting-edge camera tech.

The Surface Phone will be a Windows 10 Mobile-powered smartphone, according to the rumor mill.

There are expected to be three versions of the Phone including a consumer model, a business model, and an enthusiast edition. The base model would have 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.

The smartphone is expected to run Win32 apps. Tech gurus say that feature could give the Surface Phone an edge over iPhone and Android devices.

The Surface Phone might come with a 20-megapixel rear camera with a Carl Zeiss lens.

Inside, it might have a Kaby Lake processor from Intel. However, latest report also suggests that Microsoft is planning to use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processors in the Surface Phone.
