1. Apple Has Three Founders
Apple Inc. was actually started by three people. While two of them are well known, the third person is known by fewer people, his name is Ronald Wayne. He was born on May 17, 1934. He provided administrative oversight and documentation for the company, and was the person to illustrate the first Apple logo.
Due to his earlier experiences with his slot machine business, which had him indebted, he was not willing to take risks with Apple. A few days later he sold his 10% share of the company to Jobs and Wozniak for US$ 800, and about a year later he accepted $1500 to forfeit any potential claims against Apple in the future.
