Quotes

Steve Jobs: [narrating] When you grow up, you tend to get told the world is the way that it is, and your life is just to live your life inside the world and try not to bash into the walls too much. But that's a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact.

Worth more than the current rating
10 January 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

It felt like the critics were a bit harsh with this one. I liked the movie and thought that the portrayal of Steve Jobs was done quite well.

But I guess I liked this movie more because of the memories of computers way back in the 80's.

The images of main-boards and soldering in the garage brings home to me my own PC building days of TRS-80's and Amiga computers.

Sure, the movie didn't cover Job's design and build of iPhone's and iPad's but overall provided a fairly decent insight into the life and times of Steve Jobs.

Oh and I just happen to be writing this review using my Macbook Air, luv it!
