Saturday, May 25: Mike Murray drove to Jobs's house in Woodside to offer some advice:
He should consider accepting the role of being a new product visionary, starting AppleLabs, and getting away from headquarters.
Jobs seemed willing to consider it. But first he would have to restore peace with Sculley.
So he picked up the telephone and surprised Sculley with an olive branch.
Could they meet the following afternoon, Jobs asked, and take a walk together in the hills above Stanford University.
They had walked there in the past, in happier times, and maybe on such a walk they could work things out.
Jobs did not know that Sculley had told Eisenstat he wanted to quit, but by then it didn't matter.
Overnight, he had changed his mind and decided to stay.
Despite the blowup the day before, he was still eager for Jobs to like him. So he agreed to meet the next afternoon.
