Woodside Design Associates, Inc. was a "high technology think tank" in Redwood City, California, headed by Jessica Stevens. [1] It was incorporated on April 2, 1981. [2] The company was also involved with military contract work. [3]

In 1987, Woodside sued Apple for breach of contract, claiming Apple was acquiring the company to incorporate its flat-panel display technology into a future portable Macintosh. The deal fell through after Apple chairman Steve Jobs was ousted by president John Sculley. [4]
