I recently watched this video with Woz and it shows an Apple 1 in a suitcase and that was great but what caught my eye was when he talks about the first ever Apple 1 wired by hand! Watch this video and look at the board in the open wooden box, this is the first ever apple 1 that Woz built! Notice that there are two boards. I believe that his two projects (TV Terminal and CPU computer) were on two different boards to make the Apple 1 initially.

What do you guys think? I know, that are other really cool things in this video like the colored Apple II case prototypes but I was more interested in the Apple 1 prototype.

very cool, but

is it just me or are youtube videos always jerky and out-of-synch? I can't say I've viewed a single one that actually plays properly. I've tried it on various Macs and PCs too . . . Tongue

Still, it's very cool to see da woz showing all that stuff.

Yea it's always very jumpy for me. The audio sync is also pretty bad for a lot of videos, and the actual video compression isn't done very well, but oh well?

They play fine for me on various machines. How fast is your connection? If it plays out the buffer then it's gonna stop until it fills it up again. I used to have jerky playback on 384Kbps DSL, but now that we're on fast cable (6+ Mbps) playback is great. I've played Google Video and YouTube videos on everything from a P3 650 to my G4 mini to my P4 Linux machine.

You might try letting the video start, then pausing it for a bit so that the buffer fills up more.

One of the other things Woz p

One of the other things Woz pointed out was software. They zoomed in on a tape of DOS 1.3 and the first released version of DOS was 3.1 so that was sweet. After seeing several Apple 1's in person now, seeing another Apple 1 in a case was no big deal, hmmm...

The audio was out of sync for me too. That can happen when capturing it if you don't do it right.

Is this museum still at Apple HQ? Anybody know?
