You can make a great product. But you have to convince people that what you're selling is greater. We're not selling computers. We're selling what they can do with a computer. A tool for the mind. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is limitless.

Well, plain and simple, to me this has been a fiasco. People not acquainted to Job's life will have the feeling they're missing something, and people who have read the book or simply know a little of Job's life will conclude the movie missed a lot.
We'll see Steve bullying on everyone as a dictator running Apple, right after picturing him as some clear minded wise man with a strong meditation and spiritual background.

And all that speeding through the story of his life to just finish halfway of his real success, and end credits appear just to let you down with all your expectations blasted.
