CNN to air "Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine" documentary this Sunday

CNN to air
This Sunday at 9pm EST, CNN will air a documentary about the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. Titled, "Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine," the film had a limited run in movie theaters, although it actually debuted at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. That is where Apple executive Eddy Cue saw it and made the comment that it was "An inaccurate and mean-spirited view of my friend. It's not a reflection of the Steve I knew."

Since it is a documentary, actual video clips are used, and we get to see the real Steve Jobs instead of an actor portraying him. A couple of recent movies about Jobs and Apple flopped at the box office, including the Universal release "Steve Jobs," which starred Michael Fassbender in the title role. 

In one dramatic clip from the documentary, former Apple employee Bob Belleville explains that working for Steve Jobs at Apple cost him his wife and kids. We've embedded that scene along with the trailer for "Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine" in the video slideshow below.

Sunday's airing will be the first major television broadcast of the documentary.

I seriously think that this Documentary was at least 10x better than the overrated Michael Fassbender movie

i guarantee it will be the lowest rated time slot. 1. no one cares about him 2. he is dead get over it 3. never invented anything just told people what he wanted like all 5yr old kids 4. football sunday week 17 major time here in usa 65yr olds watch cnn over fb 5. so many movies and docs made about him and his team/company 6 finally the demographic people that use iphones dont know what cnn is, they use twitter and facebook for news.

Yes! Anything that has the word "Apple" in it will be criticised.

Im glad that Jobs is dead and the world knows what an evil piece of $hit that he was. Good Riddance. I can't wait for the that queen Cook and the rest of Apple to join him in the ground.

Please PA, correct your heading, What I saw on CNN is "The Man Behind The Machine". Not In The Machine.

"An inaccurate and mean-spirited view of my friend. It's not a reflection of the Steve I knew." Too many facts to back up that he was an asshole. Your opinion is invalid.

Why not just forget about him? He's dead and gone.

Sure, and why don't we just forget about Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein and the rest of the crazy, short-tempered inventors. They're dead and gone and just a bunch of A-holes too, right? (HINT: Look in the mirror to see one of the biggest!)

Jobs was NOT a genius. He was a scumbag. Do NOT even mention him is the same conversation with Edison.

He is way too overrated. Yes he did lot of revolutionary things like Iphone, Ipod, Mac but they are many other deserve as much attention as well. Tim Berners-Lee, Elon Musk, Larry Ellison, Akio Morita, Nikola Tesla for example.
