  • Childhood Home of Steve Jobs May Become a Historical Site


    The late Apple co-founder is widely acknowledged to have helped change the way much of the world interacts with computers and now Jobs’ childhood home could become a historically preserved site in order to honor his accomplishments. Jobs’ family home, the location where he took part in the construction of the first Apple computer, may soon become a protected historical site, according to CNN. The Los Altos Historical Commission is looking to conduct a “historic property evaluation” on the property, with a decision to follow soon after.

    The Los Altos location, at 2066 Crist Drive, would see preservation if the commission decides it is worthy of the historical site designation. Jobs moved to the house with his foster parents as a 7th grader and lived there throughout high school. Jobs and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak ended up building the first 50 Apple 1 computers in the house’s garage before selling them to Paul Terrell’s Byte Shop in Mountain view, California for $500 a piece.

    As of right now, the three-bedroom, two bathroom ranch-style house which was built in 1952 has a current estimated value of $1.5 million.

      Interesting, the birthplace of the Apple I becoming a historically preserved site. Makes sense for Los Altos to want to preserve a place as significant as that considering how far everything has come since the Apple I.

      Akshay you seriously need to proof read your articles before making them public. This was extremely difficult to understand what you meant half the time with so many spelling and grammatical errors. ESL??

      The Los Altos location, at 2066 Crist Drive, would see preservation if the commission decides it is (worth) worthy of the historical site designation. Jobs moved to the house with his foster parents as a 7th grader and lived there throughout high school. Jobs and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak ended up (being) building the first 50 Apple 1 computers in the house’s garage before selling them to Paul Terrell’s Byte Shop in Mountain view, California for $500 (per) a piece. Or per unit instead but per piece makes it sound like they charged the guy per each part on the board, it's a grammar thing.

      It's easy to tell which parts you wrote vs which parts you cut and paste from your source.

      Zrevai, your the only one that is hard to understand. Please correct.
