The interaction between Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak shown in the first scene to be released from the biopic JOBS, due to appear in theaters April 19, is ‘totally wrong’ according to an email Wozniak sent to Gizmodo.
Totally wrong. Personalities and where the ideas of computers affecting society did not come from Jobs. They inspired me and were widely spoken at the Homebrew Computer Club. Steve came back from Oregon and came to a club meeting and didn’t start talking about this great social impact. His idea was to make a $ 20 PC board and sell it for $ 40 to help people at the club build the computer I’d given away … 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.
Wozniak says that ‘the lofty talk came much further down the line’ after Jobs started to see more about the likely social impact of personal computers.
In short – it’s possible that they just hit on this moment to move things along/condense time frame.
Who knows. Can’t judge from the clip alone
Woz needs to get that through his head before he starts shooting his mouth off.
woz is the man
sorry for bad english
It’s a freaking movie. Only idiots don’t expect some poetic license.
I barely got through the book, as half of the book is Woz telling us how great he is and how smart he is… we already know that… the guy is a genius. I just don’t like it when someone tells me how much of a genius they are. If someone else wants to write about him, that’s fine.
Woz isn’t afraid to tell you how great he is and that he did something you can’t do. I would like a bit more modesty.
So far, The Pirates of Silicon Valley is pretty close – which was based on Fire in the Valley.
Also, Ashton just doesn’t cut it. It’s like watching Kelso trying to be Jobs.
Noah Wylie did a great job.
