Apple's "Forgotten Founder" Publishes Autobiography(September 07, 2011)
Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) September 07, 2011
It is widely known that in the late 1970s Steve Jobs & Steve Wozniak founded Apple Computer in a garage in Northern California. What is less known is that Apple was founded twice, once as a "Company" then again as a "Corporation". Ron was instrumental in the creation of the former, but walked away from his 10% share of the tech start-up just weeks after it was established, giving up what has been speculated to be billions of dollars. "Adventures of an Apple Founder" offers insight into the experiences that informed his decision to participate, as well as to leave a short time later.
Steve Wozniak, inventor, entrepreneur and co-founder of Apple Inc. contributed the foreword to the book. In a recent interview with Bloomberg TV, Wozniak was quoted as saying, "Ron is one of those people He doesn't look back with regret. Your mind was working well and making the right decisions for the way you think at that point in time, and that was part of what made him credible to Steve and I. It's a type of integrity, I was sorry to see him leave."
"Adventures of an Apple Founder" offers a never before told backstory to the man whose passion for engineering and design spans nearly three quarters of a century. Ron holds a dozen patents, has worked in aerospace engineering, at video game maker Atari, and has spent the better part of his life in pursuit of a long time passion- building Las Vegas style gaming machines.
After the original founding, Ron's involvement with Apple Inc. was very limited. So much so that he has admitted to never owning an Apple device of any kind. That was until September 5, 2011 when he was presented with an iPad 2 while speaking at the 2011 Update Conference in Brighton, UK.
"Adventures of an Apple Founder" is available in paperback, as well as digitally on the Apple iBookstore and coming soon to the Barnes and Nobel Nook and Amazon Kindle eBook readers.
