About “the Apple”. 1983 to 1993, the truth is somewhere near. The Expulsion Of The Jobs

In October 1983 the price of preparing for the birth of the Macintosh 128K/400 has already been assigned and recorded. At the level of 1995 dollars. But Scully decided to raise it to 2495.

“We need somewhere to take money on its advertising and promotion,” replied Scully defences up jobs. After a few days Steve gave up. That is, the screening of the movie in 1984 as the most expensive Prime-time, when he watched dozens, if not hundreds, of millions of Americans, cost the buyers the very first Macs in the $ 500 to spare for each instance. Well, they did not even know existed.

Maybe for 1995, $ Mac 128K/400 was sold to have fun. But it is not a fact. If not for the historical display of historical movie in Prime time, it would have learned much less potential buyers. Tens of thousands instead of tens of millions.

Version and reality

There is a theory that John Scully (adjectives omitted), jealous of jobs, not understanding the technology, from harm and other bad personal qualities, took and fired the poor Steve jobs…

Actually… Scully didn’t envy the jobs, in 1984 and 1985, they violently clashed, but as the future showed, they were both right and wrong. And if you look at the events of those days with an open mind, rather, it is jobs was wrong more than his opponent. And Scully at the time didn’t really understand what “vision”. Where and when he could get this understanding? Scully ignored that factor, this was his fault.

Sculley didn’t fire jobs. He removed jobs from managing the Macintosh Division, and the reasons for such a step was. The rest did jobs himself. The escalation of the conflict, the conspiracy, a coup attempt, an appeal to the Board of Directors with the request to dismiss Scully. Read more about these events below.

And besides, Steve jobs was not poor. He didn’t have to worry about where to get the money to buy the next “Mercedes”. And besides, he owned a six-and-a-half million shares of Apple, the sale of which soon after his departure from the company turned him into a multimillionaire.

The threat for Macintosh

The situation in the company in 1985, was extremely pessimistic. Sales of the Apple II fell, the Mac generally sold badly. For the young personal computer industry from time to time, like a tsunami on a defenseless populous shore, rolled over incomprehensible crises, something like the outbreak of SARS or influenza, and it looks like it was one of them – but obvious errors Apple Computer played a role.

Led to complications.

Apple employees waited for the next contractions. The risk of turning the Macintosh into another failure is literally hanging in the air. Steve stubbornly pushed to the end of the project, the meaning and usefulness of which raised doubts of most experts.

  • The same Big Mac;
  • portable Mac, the consequence of Dating jobs with the first commercial laptop Osborne 1;
  • the concept of Desktop Publishing and real projects to implement this concept in life LaserWriter and support the company Aldus, developed for Macs PageMaker program to work on this direction was created a special division of the company (special forces!) Apple Lab;

And one more thing, “the little things”.

We know that it was very important and valuable, but at the time really needed to make the maneuver to save the company afloat.

The contradiction between jobs and Scully continued to deteriorate until the situation flared and sparkled not with a Bang and smoke… But before we talk about what and how things ended, find out whether the Macintosh project were in jeopardy?

Sales of Macs

Sales of Macs were worse than expected, but despite the imperfection and devastatingly weak technical specifications Macintosh 128K/400, everything went surprisingly well. Jobs promised to sell a million Macs in 1984? So after him, no one believed it, about the promise reported as another oddity eccentric Enfant Terrible of Silicon valley.

He promised to sell to one hundred thousand Macintosh 128K/400 for the first one hundred days of the start of sales. Around the one hundredth day has sold 72 thousand Macs. This is confirmed by the data, those who claim to be selling the Apple for the entire 1984 only 80 thousand Macs or don’t know, either… lying?

In June 1984, it was sold 65 thousand Macs. Apple Computer was hit by a barrage of complaints and criticism. The computer was intriguingly interesting, but frankly weak. In September 1984 Apple Computer finally broke proud silence and answered. To the model number of Macs added Macintosh 512K/400. For $ 3195.

The sales of Macs is not affected. More…

At the end of October or in early November was a crisis. The most similar to the epidemic. In November it sold a total of about 20 thousand Macs. In December even less.

The rebellion

Sluggish sales have continued and “on the other side of Christmas”, in the new 1985.

According to sculley, jobs had killed their offspring and company. Sculley removed jobs from the leadership of the “unclear” projects and moved it to “the local equivalent of Siberia.” Steve went mad with idleness, injustice, stupidity and betrayal, a mile small from the doers of history, and… he finally decided to act.

9 or 10 April 1985, Scully had to fly to China. On this day, Steve planned a coup. He talked with people, shared his vision with each separately. Someone gave the plan the “April uprising” John Scully. It is believed that jobs gave Jean Louis Gasse. Maybe…

Scully secretly canceled the trip to China and came to the office at the most inopportune moment of the insurgents. It ended before it began.

Sculley didn’t fire jobs. None of the supported Steve staff was fired. This is furious and is not in-control of the jobs appealed to the Board of Directors with the request to dismiss Scully. He was sincerely convinced that the Board will support it.

Jobs was unable to convince the Board of Directors of the correctness, but lucidly and convincingly proved that working together with John Scully he will not.

The Board of Directors fired Steve jobs. Won’t ask how you would have done. We have the advantage over men of the time, we know that jobs was a genius. In those days this was only a guess, and these quick-witted, and could be counted on the fingers of both hands.

The Board of Directors fired jobs because he just couldn’t do otherwise. BUT let us imagine that a miracle happened. Steve took himself in hand and would have distorted the minds of the audience the “field of distortion of reality,” and instead of John sculley left the company would be Steve jobs.

If Steve jobs in 1985, won

Hardly company would have waited for a bright future. Jobs himself was aware that to manage large multi-million dollar company, he is not capable of. In any case, would have to find a new contender for the post of head of Apple Computer, spend the time and money of the company, while competitors will be surviving company from the market.

Moreover, almost any other senior Executive, particularly with management experience in large companies, which, in addition, also a professional in the field of promotion and brand promotion that ultimately would have behaved the same as Scully. Or worse.

I’m afraid if Steve jobs joined the company in 1985, Apple Computer could not live up to the ‘ 90s. To become what Steve was in 1997, he had to survive dismissal, and the tremendous epic of the NeXT, and just grow up.

The ideal outcome would be a compromise between jobs and Scully, which was absolutely impossible.

The continuation (about Newton and communication with Apple) should be.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed They say this man will rule the world under a one world igion called spiritualism

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace It will be a false peace for a period of time You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things They have their plans set in place It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name ” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast
