The -led Steve Jobs biopic, jOBS, hits theaters in a couple of months and the first clip from the movie has just arrived. It features Apple co-founders Jobs and Steve Wozniak () discussing the new operating system that they've just created, although Wozniak seems unconvinced of its merits. Check it out:
When I first saw this scene I thought it was pretty decent, especially as it highlighted the differences of opinion between Apple's two founders. Get this though, none of that actually happened. How do I know? Because Wozniak has admitted as much himself. Asked by Gizmodo to comment on the scene's accuracy, Wozniak replied:
Not close...we never had such interaction and roles...I'm not even sure what it's getting at...personalities are very wrong although mine is closer...don't forget that my purpose was inspired by the values of the Homebrew Computer Club along with ideas of the value of such machines and Steve J. wasn't around and didn't attend the club so he was the one learning about such social impact of the future.
Oh. He also added:
The lofty talk came much further down the line.
I suppose it's to be expected that the film makers took a bit of dramatic license to spice up the plot. Jobs might turn out to be massively entertaining when it lands in theaters, just don't expect it to be 100% accurate.
Jobs is released April 19th.
Does it matter than the film might not be 100% accurate? Will you still go see it when it get a release? Drop a comment below.
