The Apple-I and Apple-II made strides that had never been taken. 

"It's the manner by which I got things done, never out of the book." 

"Our specialists disclose to us that there may be 15 on the planet that work appropriately. You can control this thing up and carry on like it's 1976. It's really awesome."
