    Link: Happy 36th Birthday, Apple 1 Computer - It was 36 years ago today that the Apple I Computer was created, designed and hand-built by Steve Wozniak. Enjoy, nerds.

    Anyone who can build a working computer out of nothing but 74xx series TTL logic chips is a gawd in my book.

    Happy Birthday Apple, now call your lawyers, you`re being sued by the DOJ for being part of an e-book monopoly.

    Apple does not have a monopoly on ebooks.
    I get ebooks from several sources online.
    Most recently, the 7 Harry Potter books that just became available in ebook and are not availabe at Apples website.

    Not a monopoly, but antitrust over price fixing with a group of publishers: http://lat.ms/HC8Fi1 (LA Times article)

    "I`d like to see them pay out a few billion."
    Fancy, reminds me of something Moss says at the end of this clip.

    Steve Jobs was a liar and a hypocrite. A con man to the core.

    And he started it all by conning the HELL out of Woz.

    And it doesn`t surprise me at all that Apple would eventually end up in a price-fixing scandal.

    I`m sure I`m not the only one that`s never wanted any Apple product, but sometimes it feels that way.

    and 36 years later they have turned into under performing overly expensive POS machines that cost as much as a used car.

    Apple rips off it`s customers just like Jobs ripped off Woz...not much has changed.

    I see we finally agree on something.

    Back in school the computer lab had a bunch of apple IIEs. Most of them were monochrome except two which had 4 colours!

    Needless to say if you were quick enough to get one of them you were the envy of the class. I achieved this feat on only one occasion but I`ll remember it forever...

    Apple isn`t alone in the lawsuit, Simon & Schuster, Hachette Book Group, Penguin Group, Mcmillan and HarperCollins are also on the block.

    The whole lawsuit is about a price raise of 2$. They won`t have to pay anything back, just stop gouging the prices of their ebooks.

    As far as Apple making their parts in-house...not any more. They use the same I-series processors, RAM, and HDDs as any PC, they just toss an A on the front instead of an I and multiply the price by 3.

    Apple`s are also getting more malware/viruses. I don`t think there`s really any cogent reasons to own a mac anymore. Unless you`re a graphic artist or something. And I said "graphic artist" not some random untalented girl taking a close-up picture of a flower and editing it into sepia.

    The Steve Jobs book makes this thing sound like it was made by the hand of God. Look at it, lol!
