According to a report on January 25 in the British newspaper, The Guardian, parts of the first Steve Jobs movie are “not close” to the truth and other parts are totally wrong.
This first movie about Steve Jobs, released on 15 months after his death from pancreatic cancer, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on Friday, January 25, ahead of its opening in theaters across the United States on April 19. While the audience applauded the film, parts are totally wrong according to Apple's other co-founder, Steve Wozniak.
Wozniak, a genius in his own right, strongly criticized the film.
In one scene, Jobs is show trying to persuade Wozniak that home computers will change the future and Wozniak replies, “Nobody wants to buy a computer. Nobody!” Wozniak (know as Woz) says that this exchange never happened and that the personalities are “very wrong”.
Commenting about the movie Woz said:
“I never looked like a professional. We were both kids. Our relationship was so different than what was portrayed. I'm embarrassed but if the movie is fun and entertaining, all the better. Anyone who reads my book iWoz can get a clearer picture.”
Steve Jobs was an Apple co-founder and visionary genius who revolutionized computers with a graphic user interface, upended the music industry by completely changing the way we listen to music and changed the computer industry's focus from desktops and laptops to the mobile web.
