Jobs did NOT invent the microcomputer. When Apple came along, it was The Woz that did the heavy lifting. But, there were others who offered "microcomputers" before Apple. I had three IMSAI's (first released in 1975) that later ran CP/M and offered packages like WordStar, first released in 1978. The Woz's design, however, was the first "right thing" and all praise is due to him for doing so. Jobs gets credit for the case design, while actually Jerry Manock, an industrial designer. did the job. "Manock describes the shape of the Apple II case as having been "dictated by the size of the circuitboard and the keyboard that fits into a wedge on the front. It had to be tall enough for expansion cards to be slotted vertically onto the motherboard and have enough interior space to dissipate heat thrown off by the power supply" (Kunkel, 13-4). Jobs and Wozniak conflicted over using expansion slots for additional customized circuitboards, Jobs believing that they were inappropriate for a consumer market which would not be comfortable altering circuitry. Wozniak's desire for expandability prevailed and the height of the Apple II case reflects its eight expansion slots." Jobs was a dick from the beginning and he got it wrong.
