    “I got an early script... and was kind of abhorred by it,” commented Wozniak...

    I'm hoping that Woz was incorrectly quoted there somehow

    Can't bear Ashton Kutcher so won't be queueing to see what looks like a generic hagiography anyway.

    Hollywood have a history of never letting the truth get in the way of a good story...so no surprises with this

    I always found Steve Jobs was the hero of people who didn't understand jack **** about engineering.

    The kind of person who wasted their life at university on some humanities degree but thinks they could design a phone. They find Jobs accessible, he wasn't smart, he was a bully with a vision.

    Totally. No offence but beside a couple things here and there and giving small time inventors a chance (like USB and the mouse i've been told), and launchingr the personal computer business, jobs was nothing but a thief and an amazing advertising genius.

    USB was invented by a syndicate of big companies, Apple was not one of them. Apple did not invent USB. Apple didn't help with USB adoption, they refused outright to include a standard port on their phones and stuff.

    The mouse had already been invented. What Jobs did do was push Dean Hovey to create a low cost mouse, which he did.

    There is some vision in bringing this product to mass market, there was vision of running a business which Woz obviously isn't interested in.

    But he was never and inventor, nor a visionary. He never invented anything, he had people at best refine existing products.

    He was an amazing salesperson.
