Celebration of Heartless Greed
22 March 2014 | by (Valencia, Spain) – See all my reviews

Jobs is the politically correct sanctification of a corporate creep whose only goal in life was to make money. Steve Jobs, the billionaire who refused to pay child support to his daughter, is presented here as an arrogant visionary who bullies and abuses his employees.

History is full of abusive and arrogant visionaries who had little regard for all the people that they crushed under their boots. What makes Steve Jobs so special? He took Apple to the top of the sales charts twice, and he was a billionaire.

Most of that profit and fame came off the backs of his abused employees. We can only wonder how many of Jobs' employees never got any credit for their inventions, and innovations? How many times did Jobs verbally abuse someone, kick them out of the company, and then use their ideas as his own?

Perhaps the greatest irony of Jobs, is that Ashton Kutcher, who became famous by playing tricks on celebrities (Punk'd), is playing the role of the inspirational visionary.

This review had nearly 800 votes, when some volunteer monitor at IMDb decided to remove it. IMDb is constantly censoring the reviews.
