Computerworld Australia - Christie's today said it will auction off an Apple 1 computer from the firm's first batch, and predicted the machine will sell for as much as $126,000 when it hits the block in October. The Apple-1 -- which consisted of a circuit board hand-built by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak -- first went on sale in July 1976 for $666.66. About 200 units were produced. According to Christie's, there are about 50 surviving Apple-1 computers.

Steve Wozniak, legendary Apple co-founder and personal computer guru, virtually single-handedly designed the hardware system for the world’s first user-friendly home computer, the Apple I, and later the Apple II. Wozniak is coming to speak at the Mondavi Center at UC Davis at 8 p.m. on Oct. 29, 2012.
HE WAS the behind-the-scenes genius who used to let Steve Jobs do all the talking. But, as Stephen McGinty discovered, Apple’s other Steve – in Edinburgh later this week – has plenty to say himself about the future of computers.
Bear with me here, because the mention of someone from Apple doesn’t necessarily mean a flame war immediately. Gizmodo recently asked their readers what the worst technology gadget they had ever purchased was, and if you dig through the comments you can find Apple honcho Steve Wozniak weighing in that the HTC Thunderbolt was right at the top of his list.
Apple broke a record Monday — becoming the most valuable public company in history. Shares of Apple stock surged more than 2 percent, pushing the company's value to more than $623 billion. This surpasses the previous record set by Microsoft in 1999.
Apple's co-founder fears that freedom of information is under attack, with the internet controlled and regulated in unnecessary and harmful ways. RT talked to Steve Wozniak on a range of topics, from Wikileaks to Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom.
A 60-second television spot created in the months leading up to the early 1984 launch of Apple's original Macintosh was shelved and never aired publicly due to concerns that it would be seen as "too self-congratulatory." Andy Hertzfeld, one of the original members of the Macintosh team that helped pioneer the personal computer revolution alongside Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, published the video to his Google page on Thursday. "Here's a rare commercial for the original Macintosh that Chiat-Day made in the fall of 1983 , featuring snippets from interviews of the design team," he said. "It never aired because Apple deemed it too self-congratulatory, although it was used in some promotional materials sent to dealers."
Creativity and entrepreneurial spirit have long coursed through the veins of Edinburgh each August but before the arrival of the Turing Festival this rarely took the form of cutting-edge thinking in computing and technology. That’s been more than compensated for this year though with the news that Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak will be giving the Festival’s keynote address.
