He was assigned to create a circuit board for the arcade video game Breakout.According to Atari co-founder Nolan Bushnell, Atari offered 0 for each chip that was eliminated in the machine.The plane stalled while climbing, then bounced down the runway, went through two fences, and crashed into an embankment.

Wozniak's apartment in San Jose was filled with monitors, electronic devices, and some computer games Wozniak had developed. (Wozniak later said he had no idea about the relation between the number and the mark of the beast, and "I came up with [it] because I like repeating digits.") Jobs and Wozniak sold their first 50 system boards to Paul Terrell, who was starting a new computer shop, called the Byte Shop, in Mountain View, California.

On April 1, 1976, Jobs and Wozniak formed Apple Computer (along with administrative supervisor Ronald Wayne, whose participation in the new venture was short lived).

After a heated argument, during which Wozniak had threatened for Jobs to 'go get himself another computer', they decided to go with eight slots.

The Apple II became one of the first highly successful mass-produced personal computers.

In the early 1970s, Wozniak was also known as "Berkeley Blue" in the phone phreak community, after he made a blue box.

He later re-enrolled at De Anza College and transferred to University of California, Berkeley in 1971.With the Apple I design, he and Jobs were largely working to impress other members of the Palo Alto-based Homebrew Computer Club, a local group of electronics hobbyists interested in computing.The Club was one of several key centers which established the home hobbyist era, essentially creating the microcomputer industry over the next few decades.Jobs had little knowledge of circuit board design and made a deal with Wozniak to split the fee evenly between them if Wozniak could minimize the number of chips.Wozniak reduced the number of chips by 50, by using RAM for the brick representation.Before focusing his attention on Apple, he was employed at Hewlett-Packard where he designed calculators.
