Ronald Wayne's Birthday

Ronald Wayne was born on 17 May, 1934

Wayne co-founded Apple Computer with Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. He also designed the first logo of the company featuring Sir Isaac Newton sitting under an apple tree.

At incorporation, Wayne had 10% of Apple stock. After 12 days, he sold it for $800 only. Though many people think of him as unlucky (and unfortunate) because the company stocks would now be worth billions, Wayne never showed any regrets. As per him, “I made the best decision with the information available”.
