Revisionist history at EPCOT

Several news blogs, including BoingBoing, have reported that the new refurbished "Spaceship Earth" ride at EPCOT now includes a diorama of Wozniak's and Jobs' garage where Apple got its start in the mid 1970s. Very nice. But take a look at the computer that one of the Steves (presumably Wozniak, the more technical of the two) is working on -- is it an Apple I, the computer that was actually designed in the garage? No -- it seems to be some sort of fictional primitive Lisa or Macintosh -- machines that weren't designed until years later. Why, oh why? Are they planning an diorama with Henry Ford building a primitive Taurus?
