Turning Down A Chance To Own 10% Of Apple
from the have-any-regrets? dept
Computer Shopper is running an article, written by the magazine's first editor, Stan Veit, talking about his experience running a small computer store in NY and dealing with Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak before Apple was even a company -- when they were pushing him to sell their Apple I machines (which were more computer boards than complete machines at the time). But the most amusing part is Steve Jobs' offer to give him 10% of the company in exchange for $10,000. It's an entertaining look into some of the very, very early days of Apple (when Woz was still working at HP). As for the opportunity (which Veit turned down) to invest, well, there's a bit of a twist at the very end of the article, care of Woz's mom.
