“Steve Jobs’ most important and proudest and moment of his career occurred when he introduced the original Macintosh on January 24, 1984.
Steve took a huge gamble with the Macintosh. For years, he alienated Apple’s management, often stealing employees from other projects to bring them to the Mac team. He encouraged internal competition and ridiculed the efforts from the rest of the company.
Now it was time to prove he was right and show the world the Next Big Thing. It was Steve and his team culminating efforts of years of hard work.”
