Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak's relationship began well before the two launched Apple in 1976.
Also pretty fascinating is how the SSAFE project sparred against Apple's second-most-famous founder, Steve Wozniak. In a November 1979 memo, a member of the team named Joe Shelton details testing protection schemes against "Woz's hardware assisted procedure to copy the diskettes." He suggests that this might be a standard for measuring the project's success: "If only someone with Woz's expertise can copy software protected with the current scheme, might it be protection enough?" The remainder of the documents show continued debates about the kind of software protection that's practical for Apple's systems, but the archive ends before detailing much in the way of concrete results. As we know, the business challenge of software piracy has yet to be completely solved, by Apple or anyone else.
