The graphing calculator story

A fantastic story about Ron Avitzur’s dedication to his Graphing Calculator app. When Apple cancelled a hardware project, Ron uncancelled his part in it.

Twenty percent of Apple’s fifteen thousand workers lost their jobs, but Greg and I were safe because we weren’t on the books in the first place and didn’t officially exist. Afterwards, there were plenty of empty offices. We found two and started sneaking into the building every day, waiting out in front for real employees to arrive and casually tailgating them through the door. Lots of people knew us and no one asked questions, since we wore our old badges as decoys.
