The co-founder of Apple says he will remember Steve Jobs for his “very quick mind” and “knowing what made sense in a product”. Steve Wozniak, who met Mr Jobs at school and was in a computer club with him before starting the company, said: “How many things do you own in the world… that are ‘I just have to have this… I actually enjoy doing my work on this product’? That’s what Apple brought to so many people.”
“We went into the garage when we were two young people with no money. You have to work out of your home. We had jobs on the side. We had nobody that could loan us money. We had no business experience. We were like a million young people who are so excited about the future they may have some day, in business, making something just out of their ideas. That’s what we were.” — Steve Wozniak
