An Interview with Apple-1PCB Designer Howard Cantin

Howard Cantin was the man behind the printed circuit boards for many of the early atari machines as well as the Apple01 computer.   Recently, Mike Willegal, creator of the Apple-1 Mimeo, sat down with Howard in a telephone interview to talk about what when into those days and his relationships with the heads of what was then Apple Computer as well as how things went with Nolan Bushnell of Atari

As for the proverbial story about how Atari refused the Atari Breakout board that Steve Wozniak built, he says “engineers at Atari couldn’t understand the design. Because they couldn’t understand it, Atari ended up not using it.”
