Ashton Kutcher stars in Jobs, the new movie about Steve Jobs and his life. This movie has been heavily panned by critics and Apple Founder Steve Wozniak “Woz” for it’s gross inaccuracies.
All in all…. the movie is good. Not excellent or merely OK, but good, and it does indeed hit an “excellent” in one spot… inspiration.
You can tell this movie is done by Apple fanboys, but Apple fanboys that became fans after Steve and Apple went through hell and back and finally delivered the comeback for Apple that nobody in the industry thought possible. Recent Apple fanboys inherently have a bit of whimsical nostalgia for the past. So assumptions are made and some things are compressed or off. Article Continues…
After an appropriate two-day delay from its planned April 15 release out of respect for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing, Funny or Die’s first full length movie iSteve has finally been bestowed upon us.
Well, maybe “finally” is the wrong word to use. That would imply there was a significant wait involved. There wasn’t. In fact, the whole point of this movie was to rush to be the first Steve Jobs biopic released and not keep us waiting for the two other Jobs films in the works.
Announced in March, iSteve reportedly was written in three days and filmed in just five to ensure it would be the first to be released. But none of that matters if the movie isn’t funny. So is it?

On behalf of the team at OWC, I extend our condolences to Steve’s family, friends, and everyone for who Steve was anything but ordinary. Few words need be said about a legendary genius, brilliant businessman – who wasn’t just about innovation, but always was about the user experience.
We get but a short time in the grand scheme of things. Steve Jobs’s time will not be forgotten any time soon, although his time certainly ended far sooner than what can be considered fair. Many of us are in a state of shock with his passing and mere words just can’t express what many team members are feeling. Our prayers go out to his family whose loss is the greatest of us all.
Apple has asked that remembrances of Jobs be emailed to them at email@example.com.
