Looking for the perfect gift for that Apple fan in your life? Jobs is now on video
It might have flopped at the box office, but for the Apple fan(s) in your life, what would be a better gift than the movie Jobs on DVD? Ok, maybe a gold 64GB Apple iPhone 5s would be a better gift, but let's assume that such an expensive present is off the table. Starring Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs and Josh Gad as Steve Wozniak, the film covers the founding of Apple by the pair, the subsequent removal of Jobs from his own company in a coupe led by John Sculley, and Jobs' triumphant return.

The Jobs DVD is available at Walmart

The movie not only ends well before the introduction of the Apple iPhone, it also seems to play free and loose with the truth according to Steve Wozniak. The Woz was portrayed as a clueless inventor who had no idea about the impact a home computer could have on the world while Jobs was played by Kutcher as a visionary. According to Wozniak, it was the other way around. Regardless, fans of the fruit, or Jobs in particular, will probably enjoy the movie and Kutcher certainly bares a resemblance to Steve Jobs at times.

Another movie about Jobs, this one based on the best-selling biography written by Walter Isaacson and penned by Aaron Sorkin, is expected to eventually come to the silver screen. So far, no one has been cast for the flick.

Jobs is available at Walmart in Blu-ray for as low as $24.86. The regular DVD edition is priced at $19.86.

Pirates of Silicon Valley was pretty good. I think this one probably tries to canonize Jobs and skip over the glaring faults he had as a human being.

I plan to watch this, but I need some more time to forgive Ashton Kutcher for what he's done to Two and Half Men.

More like what Charlie Sheen did by going in his drug addiction rage that he did that got him kicked off the show.

good movie,but no thanks to steve wozniak uncoorperative behavior and reluctant to provide information during the making of the film and then critics the film inacccurate representation of him after the film was finished.

IMO he is one big sour fruit that only dare to speak only after the death of Jobs. If Jobs is still here he would have to be careful about what he is saying,probably hiding in the shed most of the time

You know nothing about Woz. He wasn't consulted about the movie, and spoke the same while Jobs was alive. He quit Apple because of the rotten way Jobs was treating people, and even have much of his stock to people that Jobs screwed who had helped them get Apple going. He was the antithesis of Steve Jobs - a decent human being.

Wow, it flopped, it flopped BADLY! I remember Steve Woz was on Bloomberg West the day before its release saying that the movie wasn't a proper depiction of what really happened and that the other movie based on the biography written by Walter Isaacson, in which Woz is working closely with the director on will be more precise.
