Apple and Atomic Bomb

atomic bomb

The atomic bomb flight suit from WWII.


The toolbox from Apple Computer.

This strange combination has something in common - both are up for auction soon. The above pictures were taken from Alexander Autographs , an auction house in Stamford CT.

I found the story of the toolbox interesting. It belong to Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak. Here's how this other Apple employee obtained the toolbox.
After seeing Steve Wozniak's box laying around for some time, I asked him about it, and he said he had no interest in it. I asked him if I could have it, and he said 'yes'...".

So if you think a co-worker will be famous someday ask him/her for some old stuff of theirs. This toolbox might go for $5000.
