In 1975, American engineer Steve Wozniak received a parcel from Japan and was immediately summoned to the US Customs Service. The notice paper said that “he was summoned for the attempt to smuggle a device under the name of pleasure stick in the USA.” The misunderstanding was soon made clear, as the parcel contained joystick for computer. What other pleasures could Wozniak indulge in in 1975? Jointly with Steve Jobs he was developing a new computer that could be a success in the market in the garage of Jobs’ parents transformed into workshop. Modest labor conditions did not prevent the companions from succeeding. The new computer proved to be a success and started going like hot cakes. On April 1, 1976, Jobs and Wozniak registered company Apple Computer. “You could not dream a more appropriate logo: lust, knowledge, hope, and anarchy,” this is how Jean-Louis Gassee, former vice president of the company, described the famous apple with a bite taken out of it.
