New Steve Jobs movie: Where Fun and Money Collide

Woz said he designed the first Apple which
"was the 5th time I designed something just for fun
that Steve Jobs found a way to turn into money". . .

Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak ("Woz"), doesn't agree with the depiction of truth in the new biopic of Steve Jobs, iJOBS,  premiering at Sundance.  An excerpt, via Gizmodo:

It's ok to make up a dramatic scene but is much better if it sort of happened and had the meaning portrayed. But this is only one short clip of the movie. The entire movie may be very good. But the initial exposure to the social meaning of a technology revolution went in a very different direction in those early times.

A more accurate portrayal would be myself in the Homebrew Computer Club (with Steve Jobs up in another state and not aware of it) being inspired by liberal humanist academics from Berkeley and Stanford and other places speaking of these high social goals. I decided then and there to help them reach those goals by designing a computer that was affordable. I gave it away to members of this club to help them. My goal was not money or power. In fact, when Steve came down and came to the club and saw the interest, he did not propose making a computer. Rather, he suggested we make a PC board so that others could build my computer easier. This PC board is just a component, like the ones Steve would sell at Haltek, a surplus electronics store. By the way, the Apple I was the 5th time I designed something just for fun that Steve found a way to turn into money, and the Apple ][ was the 6th time. We always split the proceeds.

We are looking forward to the OTHER biopic movie about Steve Jobs, by screenwriter Aaron Sorkin (HBOs Newsroom, Social Network) depicting (3) major behind-the-scenes prior to an  Apple product launch.  Check it out  - video #2 with an interview with Aaron Sorkin by Tina Brown, Editor of The Daily Beast such as forex brokers.

    Уважаю таких людей как Стив Джобс, да и вообще таких людей как он, которые умеют из ничего грубо говоря сделать деньги. Вот и мой друг кстати относиться к таким же людям, он представляете себе скачал клуб вулкан и играя в него очень хорошо увеличил свой доход. Как говорит он, что ничего сложного, нужно только терпение. Так что тот кто хочет, тот найдёт способ как заработать!
