Site Owner permission letter

A site owner permission letter has been received from Apple Inc. for the Apple I and Apple II plaques. Apple requested that the letter not be posted on the site.

I support the milestone and the aforementioned comments.

This is a good proposal and certainly the Apple I is worthy of recognition. I suggest that the words "Introduction of" be dropped from the milestone title. It is the computer itself that is the focus of the milestone.

I concur and would simply add that side-by-side recognition of both the Apple I and the Apple II seems most fitting in the evolving portrait of computing that IEEE Milestones over time will recognize.

The Apple I is definitely worthy of a milestone, however the current wording is not assertive of its claim. Consider wording such as "The Apple I was the first to..." or "The Apple I enabled..." or "The Apple I led to..." ---Dave Bart
