the rewriting of Steven Jobs legacy begins

http://insidemovies.ew.com/2013/01/2...wozniak-movie/

If you are a true geek or nerd you know that Jobs was a piece of work and while he was alive people were scared of him. His yelling at Bill Gates has become somewhat mythical. Now the movies and docs are coming out.

Steve Wozniak was somewhat in the background and over looked by the media because Jobs was such a good showman

Nice to Woz getting his credit finally--but it looks like the anti Jobs brigade are going a bit over board

Why is this being made?

1. Jobs just died...

2. There's already a movie on Jobs, Wozniak, Gates, Allen: Pirates of Silicon Valley...

Because whoever wants to make this knows Apple fans will buy anything with an Apple logo on it and want to make money.

I was just going to bring up Pirates. I'm surprised Apple fans even allow that on the net since it make Jobs look like a bit of a ******.

I don't think many Apple fans deny that Jobs was a ****ing *******.

Apple fans over 30 know the real Jobs but those under 30 for the most part have elevated him to god like status and to them him and Apple have done no wrong.

It still pissed me off to no end that Dennis Ritchie, who was a million times more important when it comes to anything computer related, died a week after Steve Jobs and no one even noticed. Such a shame.
