Creative Advertisements: Life Is Too Short For Wrong Jobs
Levi's Advertisements Always Amaze.

It looks like the advertisement of the very first Apple Computer: Apple I, also known as the Apple-1. This is Apple's absolute first logo, pre 1976: The very first Apple Computer logo, drawn by Ronald Wayne, shows Isaac Newton under an apple tree. This is what Wikipedia says: The Apple I was Apple's first product, demonstrated in April 1976 at the Homebrew Computerclub in Palo Alto, California. It went on sale in July 1976 at a price of $666.66(checkout the price & date on the ad), reportedly because Wozniak liked repeating digits and because they originally sold it to a local shop for $500 and added a one-third markup. About 200 units were produced. Unlike other hobbyist computers of its day, which were sold as kits, the Apple I was a fully assembled circuit board containing about 30 chips. However, to make a working computer, users still had to add a case, power supply, keyboard, and display. An optional board providing a cassette interface for storage was later released at a cost of $75.
