His argument was that a great engineer would be remembered only if he teamed with a great marketer,
and this required him to commit his designs to the partnership.
Jobs was so impressed and grateful that he offered Wayne a 10% stake in the new partnership,
turning him into a tie-breaker if Jobs and Wozniak disagreed over an issue.
"They were very different, but they made a powerful team," said Wayne.
Jobs at times seemed to be driven by demons, while Woz seemed a naif who was toyed with by angels.
Jobs had a bravado that helped him get things done, occasionally by manipulating people.
He could be charismatic, even mesmerizing, but also cold and brutal.
Wozniak, in contrast, was shy and socially awkward, which made him seem childishly sweet.
"Woz is very bright in some areas, but he's almost like a savant,
since he was so stunted when it came to dealing with people he didn't know," said Jobs.
"We were a good pair."
It helped that Jobs was awed by Wozniak's engineering wizardry,
and Wozniak was awed by Jobs's business drive.
"I never wanted to deal with people and step on toes,
but Steve could call up people he didn't know and make them do things," Wozniak recalled.
"He could be rough on people he didn't think were smart,
but he never treated me rudely, even in later years when maybe I couldn't answer a question as well as he wanted."
Even after Wozniak became convinced that his new computer design should become the property of the Apple partnership,
he felt that he had to offer it first to HP, since he was working there.
"I believed it was my duty to tell HP about what I had designed while working for them.
That was the right thing and the ethical thing."
So he demonstrated it to his managers in the spring of 1976.
于是在 1976 年的春天，他向老板以及高级经理们展示了自己的成果。
The senior executive at the meeting was impressed, and seemed torn,
but he finally said it was not something that HP could develop.
It was a hobbyist product, at least for now, and didn't fit into the company's high-quality market segments.
"I was disappointed," Wozniak recalled, "but now I was free to enter into the Apple partnership."
On April 1, 1976, Jobs and Wozniak went to Wayne's apartment in Mountain View to draw up the partnership agreement.
Wayne said he had some experience "writing in legalese," so he composed the three-page document himself.
His "legalese" got the better of him.
Paragraphs began with various flourishes:
"Be it noted herewith...Be it further noted herewith...
Now the refore, in consideration of the respective assignments of interests . . ."
But the division of shares and profits was clear—45%-45%-10%
and it was stipulated that any expenditures of more than $100 would require agreement of at least two of the partners.
Also, the responsibilities were spelled out.
"Wozniak shall assume both general and major responsibility for the conduct of Electrical Engineering;
Jobs shall assume general responsibility for Electrical Engineering and Marketing,
and Wayne shall assume major responsibility for Mechanical Engineering and Documentation."
Jobs signed in lowercase script, Wozniak in careful cursive, and Wayne in an illegible squiggle.
