The world’s largest technology company, Apple Inc. which was established in the year 1976 is now once again in the spotlight and for all the right reasons too. This particular year was the historic time when former Apple CEO and now deceased tech titan, Steve Jobs created Apple Computer Company alongside Steve Wozniack and Ronald Wayne. This particular entity in last three decades has revolutionized the tech industry with some of the most state of the art inventions such as iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and the legendary Mac computer systems and the Macintosh operating system. Come December 13th, 2011, the iconic Apple contract will be put up for auction by one of the foremost auction houses, Sotheby’s. These contract papers contain the details of the creation of the company as well as the original signatures of all three partners.
The auction of Apple’s founding contract papers will be nothing less than historic and as per Sotheby’s pre-auction estimates, the item is expected to fetch anywhere between $100,000 to $150,000. However, seeing the amount of love and respect for Steve Jobs from his millions of diehard admirers, as well as the company’s stellar reputation, this speculative figure could in fact rise to a much higher amount. It is a well-known fact that Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniack were friends from their college days. However, what is a lesser known it that Steve Jobs met Ronald Wayne while working for Atari and invited him create a company that would literally change the world. As far as the auction is concerned, this wouldn’t be the first time that Apple Inc. has been features in a high profile auction.
