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.

There is not much to say about this movie that hasn't been written in many of the reviews before. The movie is flat, no emotions whatsoever, no chemistry between the actors, most of the carachters are just "one dimension"..
I am not an apple fanatic (I have some of their products but I do not change them to follow the flow every year) and I am not blind before the flaws of Jobs' personality, but I'd like to see in the movie all the aspects of the man who, like it or not, left a mark in the IT field. What I saw it is a series of often disconnected episodes, and the few of them which were nice were a re-do of the (much better) the pirates of the Silicon Valley.
Do not waste your time with this movie: if you want to learn more about apple/jobs, read a book, if you are already aware of the story, it simply won't add anything.
