The Genius of Steve Jobs and Bill Gates
“So we went to Atari and said, ‘We’ve got this amazing thing, even built with some of your parts and what do you think about funding us? Or we’ll give it to you. We just want to do it. Pay our salary, we’ll come work for you.’ They said ‘No’. Then we went to Hewlett-Packard; they said, ‘We don’t need you. You haven’t got through college yet’.”
Steve Jobs on attempts to get Atari and HP interested in his and Steve Wozniak’s personal computer.
“640K ought to be enough for anybody.”
Bill Gates of Microsoft, 1981.
