EEV Blog: 206 Apple's Magician Pass Away
« on: October 11, 2011, 11:27:35 pm »
Steven Jobs is the business side to the Apple One and Two that got the company off a great start.  The Apple Three was very well built, but did not sold well.  The Lisa and Macintosh XL did not sold well, but an economy Macintosh did.  The earlier Macintoshes did not have longevity, because solder joints fracture and did not have good cooling or power supply, that is the analog board, until the Macintosh SE and $6,900.00 USD Mac Portable in 1989.  With lots of memorial discussion about the late Steven Jobs, what about his co-founder?  His first daughter?

His co-founder, the second magician's website can be found here:

http://www.woz.org/about

Yes, he graduated from U.C. Berkeley in electrical electronics engineering in 1987 and worked and married and divorce various times.  His mark in engineering was the Apple 1, 2 and floppy disk drive electronics in the Apple 2, Apple 2 GS (Color and sound version of the Apple 2, it was better than the monochrome, black and white Macintoshes at the time.), and Macintoshes, the Integrated Woz Machines, the IWM drive controller.  He became a low key, low profile philanthropists to the local Santa Clara county Los Gatos Unified School District, public school.  He tried to normalize relations between the old Soviet Union and the U.S. by sending his computers to them, which got some scrutiny from the U.S. government watch list.  One of his last notable project outside of Apple on his own was the universal remote control that controls almost everything in the house from one hand held controller concept.

Lisa Brennan Jobs moved to Europe to become an author for various tabloids Vogue and The Oprah Magazine.

Apple will be here as long as people listen to the I Pod MP3 players, surf the web on the I Pad and talk and navigate on the I Phone and like the Perl and Unix based Mac OS X.   

The Next did not sold well, because of its $6,500.00 USD in 1988.

Steven Wozinak strive to be a non conformity, but the company he co-founded is now a mecca for the conformist, that everyone is gravitated to the I Phone, I Pad, or I Pod to conform with a fad of portable communications or MP3 media players. 

Congratulations on Dave Jones's new office and work bench.

Hint: Don't watch the video, put it in the background or on another tab, and listen to the audio. The video aspect isn't crucial to the content.

Dave, could you employ a home made steady cam if you do?

Too bad that this isn't getting almost any attention. Ritchie made much more important stuff than Jobs. Taking a standard product, dumbing it down and selling it in a pretty package isn't all that magical (Although, I must give it to Apple that they make existing stuff popular... too bad they then sue the crap out of every innovative competitor). Creating a portable, simple yet complex language in times when no two platforms even had the same number of bits in a word and having it survive pretty much unchanged for decades, that is amazing.

You can do anything with the right attitude and a hammer.
