Apple History, News

With Apple now over 30 years old, it’s sometimes easy to forget that they were on the vanguard of technological innovation years before the Mac came to be, and decades before the iPod and iPhone took over the world. The Apple II, which was introduced at the West Coast Computer Faire in 1977, helped launch the personal computer revolution – a fact which Apple gleefuly points out in every single one of their press releases.

One of the more revolutionary aspects of the original Apple II was its support for color graphics, a feature which, at the time, seemed impossible to support on a personal computer. Steve Wozniak was the brains behind the Apple II, and below, he talks about how he figured out how to add color support to the Apple II without a multitude of chips.
