1. Originally, Apple had three co-founders. Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne. The third co-founder, Ronald Wayne joined the other two co-founders but left the company in just 12 days after the company was founded. The 10% share that he had, he sold them for $800 only and got $1500 additional payout. If Wayne had stayed with the company, his shares would have been worth $60 billion today! But still the 80 years old Wayne says that he has no regrets.
2. There were many mysterious surrounded the reason for the name of the company Apple. But the truth is that it was the fruit that Steve Jobs loved, so he named the company as Apple. As simple as that!

10. Apple I was first sold for 666.66 USD, but not for a satanic reason. Steve Wozniak said that it was because he was fond of recurring digits and when the price worked out at 667 USD, he changed it to 666.66 USD because it was easy to write. To raise money for buying parts and building the first few orders of the Apple I, Jobs sold his Volkswagen and Steve Wozniak, who was working at HP back then, sold his scientific calculator (Hewlett-Packard 65) for $500.
