This is a great story reported in the LA Times; a woman whose husband had recently died decided to clean out their garage. She found several boxes of computer junk, old circuit boards, keyboards, you know the sort of stuff. Doing the right thing she took it all to a local e-waste recycling centre in Silicon Valley. Some time later when the recyclers were sorting through the boxes though found an Apple I computer. They auctioned this very rare machine for $200,000 and are now trying to locate the woman to give her half the money. So if you have a father, grandfather or uncle with what looks like computer junk perhaps you should have a careful sort through it, you never know what you may find.
