Ron Wayne, along with Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, founded Apple in 1976, but apparently bailed after a week of worrying that Jobs was spending too much money and Woz wasn't being practical. So he sold his 10 percent stake in Apple for $2,300, he told People. Today, that share would be worth billions.
"I've got no regrets, absolutely none," Wayne, told People. "I'm certainly not going to waste my tomorrows worried about my yesterdays. It's a wasteful use of energy and productivity."
Wayne, 80, now lives in Pahrump, Nev. and is auctioning his "archives" of old papers from his short time with Apple. He hopes to get as much as $50,000. "This will definitely ease my retirement," Wayne said. "This will make the rest of my retired life much more comfortable."
