The movie is not all it was said to be. Most of the media hype turned out to be just that: hot air. One of the closest confidantes of Jobs, Steve Wozniak himself found several omissions in the movie. Though the acting was not substandard, yet it was not up to par either. Parts of it looked to be fiction rather than fact. Like Wozniak, several other characters in the film also didn’t do full justice to the real life people they were based upon. According to Wozniak, the lead actor who portrayed Jobs, that is Ashton Kutcher, was prejudiced against him (Wozniak) due to certain rumors. Wozniak also felt sorry for many others who were misrepresented in the movie.
Other pioneer employees of Apple such as Daniel Kottke and Bill Fernandez too had reservations about the new movie out just now. While Daniel Kottke was not so harsh, Bill Fernandez actually said that it was a pack of lies. Others spoke how it would probably evoke laughter since it was more of a comedy. Even Steve Wozniak said this much that he would rather watch it all alone rather than in an audience. At times the movie is unfair indeed since it doesn’t acknowledge the other elements like friends and colleagues in Steve Jobs’ life. Rather it appears to be a story of Apple instead of Jobs and his mentors.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
