My! How We've Come So Far!

There are a lot-and when I say a lot, I mean A LOT- of people who have gotten us to where we are today, with all of the technilogical advancements and even just general knowledge!  We have a lot of people to thank!  The most important person in the history of computers has to be Steve Wozniak.  Apple computer has made millions of dollars off of his technical designs.  Sure, Steve Jobs is the one we see advertising for it, but the real master mind behind it all is Wozniak.  He was the one who actually made it work.  That was one smart man!  He didn't just think of it from scratch though, I mean, he had a little help.  He just had a passion for it though, and he pushed himself and made a breakthrough!  It wasn't his name up in lights though, which is what I respect most about him.  They made millions off of his product, and are still making millions from other apple technologies and advancements.  Steve Wozniak retired though.  He was still young, and he retired.  He was content with what he'd made, it was all he needed and he got out.  So he wasn't in it for the money! What he's doing now is the even more amazing part.  He's buying the stuff and teaching kids to build computers just like he did.  I think that is just amazing, and so inspiring!  We really have come a long way since that first computer, and things are changing fast!
