Apple's founding documents go up for auction Sotheby's auction house is preparing to auction off the three pages of typewritten paper that are the founding papers for Apple.
On April 1st, 1976, Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne all signed the documents which are headlined "Apple Computer Company Partnership Agreement."

The auction is expected to fetch about $150,000 next week in NYC.

Pencom Systems CEO Wade Saadi is the current owner of the documents, and he said he did not tell too many people he owned them.

However, after Jobs passed away earlier this year, his phone began ringing from those that did know, inquiring on how to purchase.

Really Afterdawn? Autoplay? I'm not sure if NBC's player doesn't let the embedder change that but still annoying.

I'm surprised it took that long to get them out there though. Either the paperwork took awhile to go through or the guy actually isn't just jumping on Job's death to up the sale price.


Doesnt expecting the unexpected make the unexpected expected and therefore mean youre expecting the expected which was the unexpected until you expected it?

PLEASE, don't do this shit again!

And editing this article to supress this "feature" would be nice, too.
