(at around 14 mins) When Woz is soldering a circuit board, he's soldering the wrong side of the board. He's also made a mess of the IC chip leads, which is precisely why all soldering is done where the contact pads are: underneath the board. See more »
We can't afford to pay three people right now.
We can't afford to pay *ourselves* unless we deliver. And don't worry about Chris, he's just a kid. So he just wants to help.

Let's see, well it was worth seeing for me; however, I wished I had waited till is came out on television -- Because it was really a "movie of the week"... do they still have those? To say this movie was weak on facts would imply they got it ALL wrong - Yes, they made some things up doing the "hollywood thing" but they didn't even attempt half the history so they couldn't have gotten it ALL wrong! Parts of his life missing were glaring!
They glossed over years -- Heck decades at points, concentrating on Apple more than Steve Jobs in my opinion... maybe a better name would have been "Apple & jobs - Some of the Years"!
Wait for the movie to hit your TV and know you will still be missing more than half the story!
