Video talks about near disaster with Mac, Apple II firsts

A video from Steve Wozniak addressing the Denver "Apple Pi" computer club on October 4, 1984 has been uploaded to YouTube. In the tapes, Wozniak addresses his hack of a hotel video-on-demand box to avoid additional charges, his probation for computer abuse, and his relationship with Steve Jobs at the time he was persuaded to quit his job with Hewlett Packard and devote himself to Apple. Also on the tape is Apple employee number six, Randy Wiggington, discussing the early days of the Macintosh operating system, when the first versions of the Finder failed to copy a floppy disk.

The two men speak for nearly an hour and a half on the early days of the Macintosh, and the company's transition from the Apple II. The videos are historically interesting, discussing all the firsts in the Apple II and comparing them to the beginning of the Mac, in front of an audience of devout fans of the technologist.
