This movie about bill gates and steve jobs is totally wrong. They aren't enemies, they are actually very close friends. Only they're companies struggled to be the best. And this idea for the movie...awesome!!! I'm totally gonna buy the biography when it comes out.

As long as they portray Steve Jobs how he really was & not as his "followers" see him this would be a great idea.

APPLE NEVER INVENTED, 4% SHARE, UNDERPOWERED/OVERPRICED FOR LIBERAL ***S


Apple and rich deadbeat dad Jobs never invented anything with mac, ipod, iphone, ipad, they just copied other existing products, then Apple and Jobs himself took ALL the credit for inventing them aided by the liberal US media. Jobs was by all accounts a terrible human being and fraud who tried to fool his idiotic liberal consumers by paying himself $1 a year while making himself several billions while unethically repricing, backdating, and springloading stocks and options which caused multiple SEC investigations. Jobs made Apple one of "America's Least Philanthropic Companies" and ended all of Apple's charitable donations programs. Yet liberals and losers with nothing else going on in their lives looked to Jobs as like their god, truly pathetic.

Apples have always been underpowered and overpriced, consumers can get 4x as much for their money elsewhere, like Asus computers that are twice as fast and twice as good in every way for half the price. That's why Apple has less than 5% market share in computers, no serious power user or gamer takes them seriously, and is headed there with pathetic iphone losing ground to far superior android phones and ipad getting beat by even non-tech companies like Amazon. Apple spends all their money on marketing and product placement to sway incredibly weak minded sheep so has no money to put into their actual products after paying their rich billionaire silicon valley executives like Gore and Jobs, while real tech companies make great products like samsung galaxy s2 which is far better than new iphone 4s even though it's much older and cheaper. Nobody who ever bothered to do any research or comparison shopping before buying anything has ever bought an Apple.

Only socialists, women, ***s, comfortable with being controlled as islaves by Apple use their products. Apple only ever marketed to women and *** urban liberal men with douches like Justin Long, Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, and their rainbow colored logos and ipods and macs, etc. Check out this ipod nano commercial, pretty much says it all about Apple as a company and its uneducated users:

WTF are you trippin' on. Steve never took the credit for anything. Name one revolutionary product that Microsoft came out with-- other than Virus' and malware--. iPad, comes out in 2010, Samsung follows with a flurry of so called competitive tablets. However Apple holds a 78% market share of all tablets. Secondly, how can you say that he tried to fool his followers. What is advertisment? Comparing Asus to Apple is like comparing a plane and a car. Sure both can move, but one's obviously better than the other. Apple is a company that has created and changed the game of technology. iPad, iPhone, iPod, and Mac are the best market products. Overpriced? Never. Apple is a company that chose not to sacrifice quality for price. Unlike Dell, and Sony. Those two crappy brands have destroyed to PC industry and slowed the technological advancements that could have been possible.

Apple has no need to copy or imitate other designs. Take for instance the mouse. Made mainstream by Apple. Multi-touch interface-Apple's 1987 Newton. So the next time you choose to speak poorly about any brand, back it up with some facts. #OWNED

Thanks for your post. It was great. Also, please continue to rely on Apple marketing rather than facts for your information. It makes for some HILARIOUS reading. Factually accurate replies are so much more boring.

See that's the problem with iFags like you. You guys never give credit to products or companies other than Apple.

See, Apple used to be an innovative company. Back in 2007, the iPhone is revolutionary and ground breaking in terms of being a media phone although it missed a lot of basic stuffs that a phone should have. After the original iPhone, in terms of technology, everything was a mess. All features they come up with has been around and used already.

No other company in the phone business that slows down innovation better than Apple. It's a no brainer. Companies like Samsung, LG, HTC are always coming with something new everytime they put out a flagship device. And Apple doesnt. Apple will just use a technology or feature that has been done or used already, add some spice and pepper, and market it as new. I give Apple credit though on making some old features better. But the point is theres nothing new.

So this is the bottom line, and the fact.
Like it or not, iPhone is the best selling less innovative phone in the world.

Let's all be honest here, Steve never invented anything, when he created his first computer, computers were already existing, when he invented the iPhone, phones were already in use, when he came up with the iPad, tablets were already bn invented years back [and how sure are we that he invented everything at Apple, there are people working their butts off and he end up havin all the credit]. even the first iPhone didnt have a simple technology which many cheap phones had. A video call [which is now known as FaceTime, I have iPhone 4 32GB, and I love iPhone but it frastrates me alot that it doesnt do simple functions such as video calling anyone who doesnt use Apple products, I cant blutooth stuff to my family member that I've taken using an iPhone, I cant view flash supported site which is the majority of sites]. the only thing about iPhone that is gr8 is the App store and nothing else. And I'm sure that's all about to change as many developers are realising that many people are using Android phones. Even the new iPhone 4S, nothing special about it accept Siri, and I'm sure if Samsung creates their own Siri, they'll be sued. One more reason I hate Apple but bn an obstacle in the world of technology. Competition is good for consumers, Apple needs to learn that.
