“The first trailer of the incoming Steve Jobs’ biopic starring Ashton Kutcher is here,” Jesus Diaz reports for Gizmodo. “I asked Steve Wozniak, close friend of Steve Jobs and Apple co-founder about it.”
I have a little bug in me that says that this movie will portray Steve as a saint who was ignored, rather than one of the key people who led Apple through failure after failure (Apple ///, LISA, Macintosh) while the revenues poured in from the Apple ][ that Jobs was trying to kill. It’s nice to have the luxury to fail. The Macintosh market was created in the 3 years after Jobs left, with a lot of effort, by some who Jobs disdains.
Jobs came back as the saint and god we now recognize and did then head the creation of other products as great as the Apple ][, like the iTunes store, the iPod, the retail stores, the iPhone and the iPad. But he was a different person, more experienced and more thoughtful and more capable of running Apple in those later years.
We truly could have used the later Jobs in earlier years at Apple, is what I feel.
