Then, at what looked like the pinnacle of his career, he astounded the business world by rising to a challenge from Steven Jobs, a brilliant college dropout and founder of the high-risk Apple Computer Company: 'Do you want to spend the rest of your life selling sugared water, or do you want to change the world?'
