Apple Computer’s Origin — Not in a Garage

Posted on December 5, 2014

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. . . .

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 in Cupertino. (HP) let me do a lot of side projects.”
