I met Woz and his charming wife Janet last evening for a photo session in Los Gatos, California. (Friday, November 18, 2011).
Silicon Valley legend Steve Wozniak (“Woz”) is one of the pioneers of the personal computer revolution. He co-founded Apple Computer in 1976 along with Steve Jobs. It was Woz, the engineering genius, who designed and built the company’s first products, the Apple I and Apple II.
Macnn reports that an eBay seller from Lebanon, Ohio managed to sell an original and unmodified Apple II computer for $6,100. Naturally the listing has been removed from the auction site, but the computer was reportedly in full working condition and even included the original Integer ROMs at the time of sale.
The Apple II computer originally retailed for a minimum of $1,298 (with 4KB of RAM) back in 1977.

Like all Apple user groups around the world (Apple computer clubs), the members of the Apple Corps of Dallas were collectively and personally saddened at the passing of Steve Jobs.
