Steve Jobs movie – finally watched it

Posted by Xavier Hacking

After missing the Steve Jobs movie last summer in the theater run I finally watched it yesterday at home on BR with fellow Apple fan/evangelist @reddrummaster. In the past 15 years I read everything on Apple, Woz and Jobs so I already know all the great stories, but I still like to go through them one more time on screen. This expectation was clearly wrong and therefor the movie kinda sucked.

The story that they tell is extremely incomplete from begin to end. Not mentioning the stories of the blue box, the Xerox Parc visit and the naming of the Lisa is pretty meh, but skipping all his years at Pixar and NeXT?!? Ugh. And the movie finishes with the Steve Jobs return at Apple in 1997. The End.

So, I clearly prefer the 25 hour (!!) audio book of the Steve Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson over this Ashton Kutcher movie. The ’99 Pirates of Silicon Valley movie is also a very good pick, but of course this one also only shows you part of the story.
