The first clip from Steve Jobs biopic jOBS has been released.
The film, starring Ashton Kutcher as the Apple co-founder, is due to close the Sundance Film Festival on January 27.
But the clip has been criticised by Steve Wozniak, who founded the technology giant alongside Jobs, who claimed he and Jobs “never had such interaction and roles”, and recounted his version of events.”Not close… we never had such interaction and roles… I’m not even sure what it’s getting at,” he told the website.
“Not close… we never had such interaction and roles… I’m not even sure what it’s getting at. Personalities and where the ideas of computers affecting society did not come from Jobs. They inspired me and were widely spoken at the Homebrew Computer Club. Steve came back from Oregon and came to a club meeting and didn’t start talking about this great social impact. His idea was to make a $20 PC board and sell it for $40 to help people at the club build the computer I’d given away.”
“Steve came from selling surplus parts at HalTed he always saw a way to make a quick buck off my designs (this was the 5th time). The lofty talk came much further down the line.”
“I never looked like a professional. We were both kids. Our relationship was so different than what was portrayed. I’m embarrassed but if the movie is fun and entertaining, all the better. Anyone who reads my book iWoz can get a clearer picture.”
jOBS is due for release on April 19.
