Ashton Kutcher's 'jOBS' to close Sundance Film Festival next month
This movie should not be confused with the film that will be based on Walter Isaacson's biography of Steve Jobs. That script is being written by Aaron Sorkin and an early outline reveals that this picture will be broken down into three parts, each showing Jobs backstage before one of his famous product announcements: the original Mac, NeXT, and the Apple iPod. If true, neither movie will delve into the introduction of the Apple iPhone and the changes to the mobile industry that followed its release.

That makes sense, an actor with no talent portraying a man that used to run a company that - now - has no innovative talent. :)

Hey...did you catch the iphone ad where they showcased the noise cancelling mic? They made it out to be something amazing when it is something that is practically expected on any smart phone these days.

Yeah. When I thought apple couldn't make anything worse than their devices they came out with their terribad commercials. To be honest, the ones that bother me the most are those that use hands/fingers that look like the person has 2 left hands. It's plain creepy.

Heh, the 1971 scene must be easy 4 Ashton cuz he was on "That 70's Show"
There is some resemblance between them, though

which one have no talent? the company or the man?
you mention about 'a company that - now'. Now. but the 'man' you mention before isn't running that company anymore.
that company is much better when that man is there.
so, that man is innovative (at least at the presentation things). the company itself (should be represent the present man who's running it) is a crap.

This movie will be based on how you can steal others ideas, patent them as your own and then sue others who are using that technology in their products.
This will be a biggest blockbuster hit lolzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz and only iFans would line up for this crap.

Who the f*ck would pay money to see this? I just don't get it, just like "the social network", could not care less.

I don't know about PAYING to see this movie, but I would watch it if it were a "made for tv" type movie. It would probably be a better mini series than a movie. But it would have to cover everything, all the way up until the very end. I'm talking the the pregnant girlfriend he dumped, the astranged daughter, stealing the mouse, and going all "thermonuclear".
Yeah, I might watch that.

He's probably talking about Pirates of Silicon Valley. It was a pretty good watch.

He will say "Apple is best in suing and patenting" ..

I still think that steve jobs doesn't deserve his own movie. Plenty of other true visionaries out there.
