Re: Just a work of fiction with the intention of making money using Steve Jobs' name
And having written a novel about Jobs entitled "Selling Steve Jobs' Liver: A Story of Startups, Innovation, and Connectivity in the Clouds" I am in full accord with this grubby philosophy. But, let's be honest. Even the best biopics take enormous liberties with the truth and that will never change.
But I think the most interesting question which none of the films address, though this movie does ask it, is what did Steve Jobs do? Not a programmer, designer, engineer, writer, etc., etc. What exactly did he bring to the party and why?
I haave some thoughts on the issue and will post up an extensive review on this at the "Liver" website. I sold Apple IIs and IIIs, was trained as a Apple "Level 2" service repairman circa 1982, owned several Macs though I'm more a Windows guy, and over the years developed a perspective on why Jobs flopped so badly in the 80s but hit it out of the park in the new century.
