Steve Wozniak, the first man to ever type on a keyboard and see the letters appear on a screen before him...

Wait, WHAT? I know how influential the Apple I was in the personal computer revolution, but I didn't know that the very concept of a keyboard interface was concocted by Wozniak. Please tell me this is another example of Daily Fail.

Maybe. I give you:
The sale will also include a report written by Steve Jobs in 1974 while he was working at Atari (which are expected to go for between $10,000 and £15,000.

Pick a monetary unit and stick with, dammit!

It's Daily Fail. The Datapoint 3300 was introduced in 1967.

The PDP-1 used a crt display in 1960.

It was dismissed by everyone except Paul Terrell, the owner of a chain of stores called Byte Shop, who ordered 50 for $500 each which he then offered to the public for $666.66.

A-Ha! I knew Apple was evil!

The computer age of the late 20th century never should have happened!

Both the headline and the article imply that Jobs had something to do with designing and building the Apple. This is wrong; It was completely a Wozniak project. Jobs was just a salesman (not that that's unimportant).

It really was the perfect partnership, though. Without Woz, Jobs would have had nothing to sell. Without Jobs, Woz would have probably been content to make hobby computers in his garage to show off at computer clubs and simply left it at that.

More fail...

"Apple Computer founders Steve Jobs (left) and Steve Wozniak (right) in 1974, as they tested their Apple 1 design"

Computer the Woz is typing on is an Apple 2, NOT an Apple 1.
