Apple II Byte Article by Woz

This is an interesting article for true geeks.  Stephen Wozinak explaining the details of the Apple II in a 1977 article for Byte magazine.

“The latest result of my design activities is the Apple-II which is the main subject of this system description article. The Apple-II builds upon this idea by providing a computer with more memory capability, a read only memory (ROM) BASIC in terpreter, color video graphics as well as point graphics and character graphics, and extended systems software.”

He illustrates the article with what appears to be screen shots such as:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Which shows a color test chart showing the 75 shades of hue available format the Apple-II.

The total article ran pages in this web presentation.  But was on 11 pages in the magazine which is available as a PDF on the site.
