The former chief Apple evangelist shares one memory of working with Steve Jobs and explains why Jobs is still loved (and hated) today.
Today the way Tech companies like FaceBook and Google are structured are a direct result of what happened to Steve Jobs being fired by his board at Apple back in the 90′s.
