Former Apple CEO John Sculley reflects on Jobs' legacy

John Sculley, former Apple CEO, had a falling out with Steve Jobs in the 1980s. Just two years after joining Apple, Sculley and Jobs were clashing over the company's direction, which resulted in Jobs getting fired from the company. Sculley calls Jobs' departure from Apple the "darkest hour of [his] professional life."

A few weeks ago Sculley said he wishes he had a do-over with Jobs from their falling out 30 years ago.

This morning on American Morning, Sculley talks about what it was like to work with Jobs, and explains the tensions within the company that led to the end of their working relationship.
