He was looking for something to put his mark on.
And he seized on this little Mac
and Steve got the vision that we were going to sell a million of these.
Instead of calling the monitor a monitor,
we called it a desktop, not a screen.
A desktop, why?
Everybody knows what a desktop is.
Little icons on the Macintosh would represent a page.
Everybody knows what a paint bucket does.
The one that looks like an eraser,
click on it and it will be erasing,
all these things that kind of remove the technology.
The development of the Mac is surrounded by corporate intrigue.
Yes, Jobs is brilliant but he's also notoriously difficult。
The board wants more of a grown-up to keep their young visionary in check.
They were not going to trust
their investment to a hippy like Steve Jobs.
So from early on,
the money men brought in older,
experienced executives to run the business of Apple computer.
Jobs himself recruits John Scully,
former president of PePsiCo to become the new CEO.
They get along well, at first。
But Scully wants to market the Mac to corporate America taking on IBM
while Jobs' sees the Mac as a consumer product
and believes it will define apple's future.
He works his A-team maniacally.
