Trivia

The film focuses primarily on 1973 - 2000: Apple's early years, its founding, and the up and down years. See more »

Goofs

When Jobs references Apple's new music player he calls it "the iPod". Particularly in his second tenure at Apple Jobs avoided preceding Apple devices with "the", rationalized that "the" in front of an "i" prefix would be redundant. See more »

A Lackluster Affair.
13 August 2013 | by (Bahawalpur City) – See all my reviews

This mini-series or whatever is atrocious. The writing is less than formulaic, for petit-bourgeois viewers. The bite of Steve Jobs, that austere, sublime man with the cruel mouth, is nowhere, nowhere to be found. Kutcher singes him. I wonder why he was chosen: someone who believes in reanimation is an absurd choice to portray a man who obviously thought this is it and that's all; Kutcher's performance severely lacks the X-ray piercing gaze of Steve Jobs that showed everybody the astuteness of one incarnation.

Especially when on screen with Josh Gad, the results are ludicrous: poor Gad seems painfully aware of the badness of the script and gives a lecherous, despaired emphasis on the badness of his lines, yet he knows and unfortunately shows he cannot escape vulgarity. So, let's grab the money and run!

The fact that he was a electronics pioneer, becomes a series of - oh! - so romantic affairs, suffering by inane lines ("You are the love of my life!" exemplifies how the writers wanted to avoid by all costs any kind of complexity); his touchy relationship with the Microsoft regime in Redmond - oooh!!!! that's touchy for our audience! So in the end you get a piece of sh*t, that is obviously destined to excite people that cannot afford an iPhone but will muse upon acquiring one, because it seems myths are exemplified this way in modern-day Hollywood. The film does not even stand as this dim-witted defensive (since it cannot actually buy one) phrase I once witnessed on a android: My other phone is an iPhone. Apple should sue for defamation, though it seems we live in times when you cannot sue the petit-bourgeois state of mind - when in fact this was what Steve Jobs achieved in style! It made me even wonder if the turtlenecks were real, which is bad. But even if they were copies, it was sure a blissful sight for sore eyes! Truly sublime, and the only thing of real and high worth in this crapola.
