Industry influencers tell the tale of Jobs first resignation from Apple, a company he created, and his transition to Pixar, (where his work there forever changed the film industry), and back then to Apple. The special looks closely at his legend as a fearless leader, his marriage to Laurene Powell, the foundation he built for Apple, and the massive influence he had on a variety of industries that continues to be felt in the years after his passing.

  1. I’ll be passing on this and Ashton Kutcher. Just saying. I saw a few preview clips and it looks rather bad. They make the Woz out to be a fool. That’s not nice. Or accurate. The Aaron Sorkin movie may be interesting? At least the Social Network movie was good if not necessarily accurate.
