As we rely more on phones and tablets for our computing needs, it seems like we're always running out of storage. Most mobile devices top out at 64GB, and while you might see a tablet with 128GB of 256GB of storage, that's still a long way from the terabyte or more that you find on even the most basic laptops and desktops.

Except that the computer in question is an Apple-1, the bare-bones machine that Steve Wozniak designed and Steve Jobs marketed in 1976, shortly before they devised the groundbreaking and wildly popular Apple II.
Break the law and Apple may follow up by breaking into your iPhone, reports CNET, though if you represent the long arm of the law asking Cupertino to give you a hand (or would the proper term be demanding?), it sounds like you'll have to wait in line: up to seven weeks, in seems.
