"Steve Jobs" screenwriter Aaron Sorkin responds to negative comments from Apple CEO Tim Cook
posted by Alan F. / Sep 25, 2015, 9:00 PM
The writer, who previously had a huge hit with "The Social Network," said that those involved in "Steve Jobs" took pay cuts to get the movie done. "Nobody did this movie to get rich," Sorkin said. "Secondly, Tim Cook should really see the movie before he decides what it is." But the writer left the biggest zinger for last. "Third, if you've got a factory full of children in China assembling phones for 17 cents an hour, you've got a lot of nerve calling someone else opportunistic."
Those who have seen previews of "Steve Jobs" have given it good reviews. The film starts Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs, and Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak. As we've pointed out before, part of the problem with this movie, and the one that starred Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs, is that neither film touches on the era in Jobs' life that includes the iPhone and iPad. Those are the products that most people think of when they hear the name Steve Jobs.
Still, the early buzz is that the movie will be an Oscar contender.

Why do you need Tim Cooks approval of the story of Steve Jobs lol at most it'll be his late wife or something.

Steve Jobs is in hell, and I hope Tim Cook joins him soon. Apple is an evil company and the US government needs to force Apple to return all those jobs from slave labor, back to fair US wages for AMERICANS and force Apple to pay the taxes that they CHEAT the American public.

Dark how do you know it doesn't exist??? Just messing with you! I think this particular topic is way too philosophical for this site but as I've gotten older I've come to the conclusion that heaven or hell does not exist in the traditional sense but are more of a metaphor for how one lives their life. If one leads a good life their happy and are in "heaven" and if one leads a bad life their in "hell" but again that is completely subjective because we all have a different idea of what a good life is supposed to be.

With a diameter of just under 8,000 miles, and the surface being right in the middle, so 4,000 miles from the upper atmosphere, and the deepest part of the core....why can we not feel hell 4,000 miles away, but we can feel the sun 93,000,000 miles away. I've always wondered that. People say well it's only spiritual, but the bible says people can go there that are alive. If it's a bottomless pit, it should protrude out of earths bottom, and continue thru the universe from its point of origin, or we should fall thru it and come out, since there's no bottom lol. Just my thoughts, but I don't believe in a place that one can burn in forever, and never ever burn up, or cities in outer space, made of gold, floating on clouds. If cities float on clouds, why do planes crash thru them into the ground, or ocean. Again, just my thoughts, and no I'm not an atheist.

Dark i actually wasn't being literal and i was pretty sure you weren't an atheist. Looking from a scientific point of view you would be correct i mean if hell exists there would be a lot of souls there that would require a lot of real estate. I would agree with it being a spiritual place but only too a point seeing as things can happen whether by direct action or random things that put a person in "hell" like the death of a spouse or child etc etc.

The US government is not an entity that is around to help you or the american people buddy. For instance, HALF of ALL FEDERAL TAX DOLLARS collected are spent "Defending the Nation", which ACUTALLY means subsidizing the arms industry in the US. That's what's REALLY cheating the American people. Taxes are far too high already. Federal income tax was less than 5% when it was first established (Yes it hasn't always existed) . How much do you pay today? If Apple isn't paying taxes, its because the US Government doesn't WANT them to.

Tim Cook maybe defending Steve Job's name but he should chill out. The source material says it all. He needs to chill down a bit.

Its the whole Realistic view on Apple (which is less then perfect) vs How Apple markets themselves. if people begin actually looking at Apple with a more realistic view, Apple would begin to lose ground rapidly, because their product isn't what is causing their success, their marketing is, that's their real product.

"Third, if you've got a factory full of children in China assembling phones for 17 cents an hour, you've got a lot of nerve calling someone else opportunistic." WOW...apply cold water and aloe to that burned area, Tim Cook! Pretty sure a certain Apple apologist whose "body is ready" all the time as well as the Apple bot that feels "no one makes money with Android" will need some cold water and aloe as well.
