Steve Jobs and his 'reality distortion field'

Colleagues of the late Apple co-founder tell CBS' "60 Minutes" that Jobs believed that his belief that something was possible could make it so.

Steve Jobs' colleagues at Apple often referred to his "reality distortion field." It's a science fiction term that described his belief that wanting and willing something--even the near-impossible--could make it happen.

Steve Jobs was kicked out of his own company after a boardroom showdown. When he returned years later, Apple was almost bankrupt, but Jobs turned it around, leading one of the biggest comebacks in business history.
