Did Apple Start In A Garage? Steve Wozniak Exposes The Truth

Jonathan Franks

Many people have heard the story of how Apple was started inside of a garage, with Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak working side by side to develop their core designs.

That story served as the foundation of the recent Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher and Josh Gad.

However, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has finally come forward and revealed the truth -- Apple did not get started inside of a garage at all.

In a recent interview with Bloomberg TV, Wozniak explained that the garage was more of a drop-off location for their developed products and designs.

"The garage is a bit of a myth; it's overblown. The garage represents us better than anything else, but we did not designs there. We would drive the finished products to the garage, make them work, and then we'd drive them down to the store that paid us cash."

This statement proves that the historic commission located in Los Altos, California, which referred to the famous garage of Steve Job's childhood home, is not 100 percent true. According to the statement, not only was Apple Computer Company founded in the garage, but it was also the location where up to 100 of the first Apple computers were assembled.

That garage has been referred to over the years as the breeding ground for the core ideas and designs that Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, along with their team, developed in order to get Apple off the ground. However, Wozniak revealed in his interview that having a large crowd of creative minds in the garage at the same time was a very rare occurrence.

"There were hardly ever more than two people in the garage. Mostly they were just sitting around doing nothing productive."

As of right now, there has not been any report confirming whether the historic commission will be modified according to what Steve Wozniak revealed in his recent interview. However, the Daily News reports that it will more than likely remain the same since the garage is still classified as a historic representation of Apple in its beginning stages.
