Ronald Wayne was only with Apple Computer for twelve days, whereupon he sold his 10% share, for $800, back to Jobs & Wozniak.
A year after this he accepted another $1,500 to renounce any future claim on the company.
When you consider the value of Apple Inc. now, that must be considered as one of the worst ever business deals.

Of course, but (there's always a but) it does make me wonder what he was hoping to get out of the venture, bailing out after 12 days was pretty quick. I've never read any histories of Apple Inc., so there might be some logical explanation or a big conspiracy.
That said Ronald must have looked back on that day and rued his decision. Like not buying the lottery ticket the week your numbers come up.
