Teary-Eyed Woz Recalls Starting in a Garage with Jobs

[Video Link] One of the great makers of our time recalls the very early days of Apple.

We went into the garage when we were two young people with no money. You have to work out of your home. We had jobs on the side. We had nobody that could loan us money. We had no business experience. We were like a million young people who are so excited about the future they may have some day, in business, making something just out of their ideas. That’s what we were. — Steve Wozniak 10/06/2011

    It must be fun being a celebrity, and learning about your friend’s death from a reporter.
