The long believed fact that Apple was made in a garage, is a myth says the co-founder of the tech giant, Steve Wozniak. He reveals that it was in fact made in his HP office. The news comes as heartbreak to all the Apple fans, and the revelation has left people stunned. Steve Wozniak has always been quite vocal about Apple. He co-founded Apple along with Steve Jobs.
In an interview with the Bloomberg Businessweek, to a question about the legendary garage, Wozniak said, “The garage is a bit of a myth. We did no designs there, no breadboarding, no prototyping, no planning of products. We did no manufacturing there,” this comes much to the surprise of people who have been devoted to Apple. Woz added, “The garage didn’t serve much purpose, except it was something for us to feel was our home.” He also stated that they were out of money, and hence had to stick to the place as they had no choice. Explaining the same, he said, “We had no money. You have to work out of your home when you have no money.”
He later went about narrating how HP let him do his side works. He said, “The work was being done — soldering things together, putting the chips together, designing them, drawing them on drafting tables — at my cubicle at Hewlett-Packard n Cupertino. (HP) let me do a lot of side projects.” There are speculations now as to how much will this revelation affect Apple’s historical statuses. The garage, which is located in Silicon Valley – at 2066 Crist Drive in Los Altos – is the place where Jobs and Wozniak made the very first Apple computers. The place was also the very first home of Steve Jobs. The Los Altos Historical Commission voted unanimously to designate the home as a “historic resource” in 2013.
