At this same time, another group of young men, comprised of Steve Wozniak, Ron Wayne, and Steve Jobs were looking at the Altair with the realization that a home computer was a really cool idea.

Ron Wayne wrote the manual, and Steve Jobs marketed the intended game machine to anyone who would listen.
