    in the news this week, following Steve Jobb's death they say that he was the Apple co founder.

    Almost as dumb as when Seattle Computing sold DOS to Microsoft for a song.

    Agreed with both. SCP sold DOS to MS for $50k. Small considering what MS made off it.

    Well, let's be fair ... he couldn't foresee what would happen. If you guys were even ALIVE in those days, I can say with great confidence that you probably blew $800 or more on stuff where you ended up with nothing to show for it. For me, it was Donkey Kong.

    I was alive and well; same age as founders.

    Also, really wasn't ragging on the guy . . . just makes me feel better about the bad financial decisions I've made.

    Oh I hear THAT!

    I bought Apple stock at $13 or so a share got maybe $10K worth (it was a long time ago now). When it hit $42 I thought "that's it, it can't possibly go much higher" and sold it (very healthy profit obviously). Nice, right?

    Then it split -- twice -- and those shares would now be worth, what, a million and a half or so? More?

    I can't think about it too hard, so forgive the sloppy math. Still, I'm happy with what I got and glad I was out of the stock market by the mid-2000s, so I'm not complaining too much.
