[11:00 AM] History Channel Program Features Steve Wozniak & Apple I
by Staff

The History Channel, a cable network devoted to history, has a program called History's Lost & Found. This show tracks down interesting objects from history and traces their path from where they started to where they are now. Last night's showing featured a segment on the original Apple I computer. The episode originally debuted on Friday, February 11th of this year.

The Apple I was the computer developed by Steve Wozniak and sold by Steve Jobs to a local hobbyist shop in the late 70's. The program interviewed Mr. Wozniak (and showed pictures of Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs together) and featured lots of footage from that interview.

For those who want the scoop, this is a brief version according to History's Lost & Found: Steve Wozniak wanted to donate one of the Apple I computers the nascent company owned to a local education effort. Steve Jobs didn't think they could afford it, so Mr. Wozniak bought the unit to give away. According to Mr. Wozniak, the machine he actually ended up giving away was the very first Apple I built. The computer was "used" for a while by the children in the program until it was replaced by some Apple IIs after they were released. It was then relegated to a basement where it has stayed safely since.

You can find more information on History's Lost & Found at the History Channel.

The Mac Observer Spin: It's good to see Steve Wozniak get a tiny bit of the enormous recognition he deserves. Some of you may have seen this episode of History's Lost & Found, but we recommend it for everyone. Not only is it informative, it is entertaining and invokes a feeling of nostalgia for many.

And while we're on the subject: A big Mac Observer Thanks to Steve Wozniak for everything he has done!
