In an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak suggested that the whole garage story was a bit of a myth. Woz told Bloomberg that “The garage is a bit of a myth. We did no design there, no breadboarding, no prototyping, no planning of products. We did no manufacturing there. The Garage didn’t serve much purpose, except it was something for us to feel ...
