The Homebrew Computer Club had ideas of how small, little people
who knew things about computers
could change the world, could become masters.
The Homebrew Computer Club took computing out of the hands of big business.
What happened was you wanted a computer or a piece of software
比如说 你想去买一台电脑 一种软件
or some product that didn’t exist.
You looked around, it didn’t exist. So you built it.
Then you showed it to your friends, cos everyone wants to show off,
人都是有虚荣心的 你做好之后 自然会把它拿给朋友们看
and your friends would say, “This is great, can I have one?”
他们就会说 "呀 这真不错 我能要一个吗?"
The values were sharing. If you have parts that can help people.
If you have knowledge, you’ll share.
Wozniak brought Jobs to the Homebrew Computer Club
where he was showing a new computer he had made.
It would become the Apple I.
He saw a business opportunity that all these people wanted to build
my computer design, but they didn’t have building skills.
And he thought, “We’ll put out some money,
design a PC board, we’ll make it for $20, we’ll sell it for $40.
设计一种个人电脑主板 花20美元成本 卖40美元
And I didn’t know if we’d sell enough to get our money back.
We’d have to sell about 50.
And I didn’t know if there were 50 people who would buy my computer.”
And Steve said, “Yeah, maybe we won’t get our money back,
but then for once in our lives,
finally, the two of us will have our own company."
Wow, man. He was... OK, he was the leader on that.
老天 他... 好吧 我听他的了
In 1976, Wozniak and Jobs began selling the Apple I computer
from the Jobs family garage.
Buyers had to add their own case.
The birth of Apple as a company had been masterminded by Jobs,
a hippy with a business brain.
