An Integrated Package
As Jobs walked the floor of the Personal Computer Festival,
he came to the realization that Paul Terrell of the Byte Shop had been right:
Personal computers should come in a complete package.
The next Apple, he decided, needed to have a great case and a built-in keyboard,
and be integrated end to end, from the power supply to the software.
"My vision was to create the first fully packaged computer," he recalled.
"We were no longer aiming for the handful of hobbyists who liked to assemble their own computers,
who knew how to buy transformers and keyboards.
For every one of them there were a thousand people who would want the machine to be ready to run."
In their hotel room on that Labor Day weekend of 1976,
Wozniak tinkered with the prototype of the new machine,
to be named the Apple II, that Jobs hoped would take them to this next level.
They brought the prototype out only once, late at night,
to test it on the color projection television in one of the conference rooms.
Wozniak had come up with an ingenious way to goose the machine's chips into creating color,
and he wanted to see if it would work on the type of television that uses a projector to display on a movie-like screen.
"I figured a projector might have a different color circuitry that would choke on my color method," he recalled.
"So I hooked up the Apple II to this projector and it worked perfectly."
As he typed on his keyboard, colorful lines and swirls burst on the screen across the room.
The only outsider who saw this first Apple II was the hotel's technician.
He said he had looked at all the machines, and this was the one he would be buying.
To produce the fully packaged Apple II would require significant capital,
so they considered selling the rights to a larger company.
Jobs went to Al Alcorn and asked for the chance to pitch it to Atari's management.
He set up a meeting with the company's president,Joe Keenan,
who was a lot more conservative than Alcorn and Bushnell.
"Steve goes in to pitch him, but Joe couldn't stand him," Alcorn recalled.
"He didn't appreciate Steve's hygiene." Jobs was barefoot, and at one point put his feet up on a desk.
"Not only are we not going to buy this thing," Keenan shouted,
"but get your feet off my desk!" Alcorn recalled thinking, "Oh, well. There goes that possibility."
