Former Apple CEO John Sculley says he never fired Steve Jobs

Washington, Jan 14 (ANI): Former Apple CEO John Sculley has clarified that late Steve Jobs was never fired from the company he helped found.

During an interview with The BBC, Sculley cited Walter Isaacson's biography of Jobs as a fair documentation of what actually happened in May 1985, and defended himself by pointing out that he 'didn't technically fire Jobs'.

"I've heard from people who have read the book Walter Isaacson cleared up some of the myths - that I never really did fire Steve Jobs and that Apple was actually a very profitable company," CBS News quoted Sculley, as saying.So the myth that I fired Steve wasn't true and the myth that I destroyed Apple, that wasn't true either," he added.

Sculley claimed that Apple was the most profitable computer company in the world at the time, with two billion dollars of cash.

The major point of contention between the two men boiled down to marketing and pricing of the Apple II and Macintosh.

"He wanted to cut the price of the Macintosh and I wanted to focus on the Apple II because we were a public company," Sculley said. (ANI)
