#Apple is the most valuable company in the world

With Apple's stock price making news headlines as it punches through the $600 mark, making it easily the largest company in the world by market capitalisation, at some $565 billion and with it's CEO deciding what to do with the $100 billion it has in the bank, it's perhaps time to recall the companies beginnings in a garage in Silicon Valley.
   The free sample chapter of The Universal Machine, "The Computer Gets Personal," can be downloaded in pdf, epub (for iBooks) and mobi (for Kindle) and describes Apple's early years from the Apple I to the Macintosh and includes a biography of Steve Wozniak, the college drop out, who along with his friend Steve Jobs made all this possible.
