In re current technology being "enough"... I have a question that I wish I had asked, when given the chance:
Mike Markkula financed Apple Computer. Mike made millions of $ with Fairchild, then Intel... Then retired...
Woz used a 6502 in the Apple I (and later Apple ][) because he couldn't afford the more expensive Intel chips (available at the time).
Why didn't Mike, with his money and connections, insist that Apple use the superior Intel chips?
