We find the Apple Computer Company releasing its initial product… the Apple 1. Before the Apple 1 computers were sold in kits that you had to build yourself. Steve Wozniak describes how that fact led to the business.
We find Bruce Jenner winning Olympic gold in the men's decathlon in Montreal. After the win, Jenner took an American flag from a spectator and waved it during the victory lap, starting a tradition now common for winning athletes.

Having heard what the Gibb brothers were up to, I said no... that is being recorded across the hall."
