How Steve was Fired from Apple

Steve came to me and he said, "I want to drop the price of the Macintosh and I want to move the advertising, shift a large portion of it away from the Apple 2 over to the Mac." I said, "Steve, it's not going to make any difference. The reason the Mac is not selling […]
