Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine

With just a little bit of searching about this movie, I saw quite a few sites pointing to the full length HD movie online. I haven’t watched it because it requires a (free) registration to a site which, let’s be honest, is not a legal movie site. The only reason I even share it is that I came across it searching for the trailer on YouTube and they have the link right there.

One of the many versions of the movie poster is below.

Steve Jobs – Official movie trailer

The movie itself looks good, but Michael Fassbender just doesn’t fit. I don’t care how good he is as an actor, he doesn’t look anything like Steve Jobs. And that would be ok were it not for the fact that Jobs only passed away a few years ago. He’s too fresh in our mind.

Possibly the most important documents in Apple’s corporate history

“For $13,000 — $5,200 up front, and $7,800 on delivery, and no additional royalties — Shepardson Microsystems would build Apple’s first DOS. For its money, Apple would get a file manager, an interface for integer BASIC and Applesoft BASIC, and utilities that would allow disk backup, disk recovery, and file copying.”

It’s always fun to look back on computing history.
