After having read the Isaacson biography I was hugely disappointed with this documentary. No passion was put into making it. Mr. Jobs would not have liked it. Ten minutes into the documentary Jobs was already being ousted from Apple. I was expecting them to exploit the media and do things, that you can't do with a book. As much as I like Michio Kaku, I don't know, why he was chosen for in-between-comments. A man like Steve Jobs deserves more than 40 minutes. The impression I got after watching this, is that Discovery just raced to do a documentary. Isaacson spent months with Jobs and made a great product. It stands in contrast to this documentary that features interviews with random people and random video clips.
