On April 1st, 1976, Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak (and, briefly, Ron Wayne) incorporated Apple Computer. They then got busy demoing and selling the Apple I, their first computer. I had fun putting together a slideshow to commemorate this significant machine. Its reputation has been an odd one: sometimes it’s been nearly forgotten, and sometimes its importance has been overblown. (No, it wasn’t the first personal computer, no matter what definition you use.) But it was neat–and as I spent time thinking about it, my respect for it only grew.
