In the early 1970s, Wozniak was also known as "Berkeley Blue" in the phone phreak community, after he made a blue box.

After a heated argument, during which Wozniak had threatened for Jobs to 'go get himself another computer', they decided to go with eight slots.

The Apple II became one of the first highly successful mass-produced personal computers.

The Apple II's eventual successor, the Apple III, released in 1980, was not nearly as successful as the Apple II.

According to Wozniak, the Apple III "had 100 percent hardware failures", and that the primary reason for these failures was that the system was designed by Apple's marketing department, unlike Apple's previous engineering-driven projects.

Apple's first computer lacked a case, power supply, keyboard, and display, all components the user had to provide.

During the design stage, Steve Jobs argued that the Apple II should have two expansion slots, while Wozniak wanted six.

According to Atari co-founder Nolan Bushnell, Atari offered $100 (equivalent to $540 in 2016) for each chip that was eliminated in the machine.

Jobs had little knowledge of circuit board design and made a deal with Wozniak to split the fee evenly between them if Wozniak could minimize the number of chips.

Before focusing his attention on Apple, he was employed at Hewlett-Packard (HP) where he designed calculators.

Steve Wozniak was introduced to Jobs by friend Bill Fernandez, who attended Homestead High School with Jobs in 1971.

Together they sold some of their possessions (such as Wozniak's HP scientific calculator and Jobs' Volkswagen van), raised $1,300, and assembled the first boards in Jobs' bedroom and later (when there was no space left) in Jobs' garage.
