If they had pride, they would not have produced PCjr.
Jobs was asked about IBM and their product, PCjr. Jobs stated that this computer is a piece of garbage and was created only to make money. Steve’s aggression is understandable, since Apple had just released their Mac at that time, and Jobs needed to support his own product in every possible way.
