    Steve Jobs is remembered as the tech genius of Apple, but Apple co-founder Wozniak was the real genius. Back In 1971, he hacked a phone network and made a machine circuit that enables free international phone calls, and Jobs made it into a product and sold them at 150 dollars each. When Apple's first computer was rolled out, Wozniak created new technologies and Jobs communicated with the market to get a grasp of demand. Jobs was a great supporter of the genius, says Brent Schlender, one of the premiere chroniclers of the personal computer revolution and who has known Jobs for 25 years.

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.
