    so, from what i remember reading, Steve Jobs was fired from Apple in 1985, at the cause of an ex "friend" who took over. (Backstabber!).

    Anywho, does anybody know his name and what his story is? Or what has become of him since Steve got his job back and has made Apple THE company of companies?

    I mean, this guy must feel like idiot of the decade.

    What jsw is saying is that the original poster had made a spelling mistake, in which case he corrected the spelling along with providing the definition of the word. ;)

    Don't you just hate when people misspell a word and confuse everyone else in the process. ;) :)

    He committed suicide, unfortunately. He shoved a kitchen knife right through his own belly like a samurai from the days of old.

    Most people could look at "hiku" and figure out what he meant.

    There was another site that had some info on what happened besides Apple History. I forget what it was, but it was really good. Do a Google search. Oh, and watch Pirates of Silicone Valley and you'll get a good picture. It's fiction, but it's really close to the truth according to Woz.

    Here's a rough draft for an essay I wrote last school year on Apple's history. I've found some historical hiccups in it that are not changed. Enjoy.

    :D

    Good one! Love the confusing mis-capitalization.

    Good job, by the way. Briefly skimmed through it since you typed so much. 8 pages! Yeesh!

    John Sculley III as he likes to call himself is associated with RHO Ventures, a start up venture capital firm, that associates themselves and built low quality fraudy companies like inphonic (wirefly), hotwire and metropcs. All these firms are a reflection of the man: disorganized and poorly run just like what he did to Apple. And hence he's still referred to John Sculley the TURD.

    If you met him in person, the first thought that comes to your mind is that this guy is just so full of it and so full of himself. He steals ideas and twists them into fanciful cow dung. How he manages is a mystery and I'm glad he no longers hangs out in Sili Valley for his foul stench is nauseating!

    there are some small inaccuracies according to some mac fans on the internet, but as far as docudramas go, it's fairly accurate and of the four main characters...jobs, woz, gates, and allen...i would tend to agree with the woz the most and i also heard he said it was basically true

    funny thing is, woz is the one who looked the best/smartest/most honorable of all the characters ;)
