WOZ

UPDATE: Time change on Gordon Shuminer's funeral to 2:00 pm. See post below. 

On June 29, 1975, at 10:00 PM WST, a momentous  event occurred without any notice in a small town in California. 

A young man, who had labored over a contraption for many months, indeed in one form or another for many years, took a deep breath and pressed button. 

One could say the future of the world changed that day.  
The future of business changed that day. 
The future of communication changed that day. How we talk with each other and how we write to each other changed that day. 
The way the world shops changed that day. 
That day changed the course of how newspapers would be published and how books would be read and how information would be communicated and stored. 

You would be hard pressed to look around and try and find items in your life that would not change based on the press of that one button that day. 

On June 29, 1975, a young man named Steve Wozniak -known as Woz to everyone- pressed a button on a keyboard and a letter appeared on a screen.

Think about that for a moment. For the first time EVER, a person typed and the letters appeared on a screen. Forty-two years ago no one had ever typed anything that appeared on a screen. And then Woz did it. 

And the world has never been the same.

Ten months later, on April 1, 1976, The Apple Corporation was born. 

From Occupied America, use your computer and Fight the Power!

Love your stuff, Rump, but you must be younger than I thought. http://www.pcworld.com/article/209224/displays/historic-monitors-slideshow.html#slide7

What in the heck is WST? Oh yeah, I got it - Writing Skills Test. Which you failed in this post. I'm sure you meant to say PST; (Pacific Standard Time). Of course, if you had written PST, you would also have been wrong. That's because, California has been using DST since 1949, so the correct time for your post should have been written as: 10:00 PM PDT.

Now let's discuss a much more important topic; TESLA, buy, sell, don't invest in it?

Tesla down 2.5 percent today. They need to raise more money to fulfill orders.

Tesla off 7.5 percent today. That's ten percent since Sunday.... again, the raise will dilute the company. It's going to 180.

Tesla down another 5 percent today. R, not too late to get on. It might go to zero.
