Woz: New 'jOBS' film was incredibly inaccurate In a new interview, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak discussed his thoughts on the new 'jOBS' film starring Ashton Kutcher.
It is safe to assume that Woz was not the hugest fan of the film.

When asked about Kutcher's portrayal, Woz says "I suspect a lot of what was wrong with the film came from Ashton's own image of Jobs." That being said, however, he also noted that "I thought the acting throughout was good."

Woz also responded to Kutcher's recent criticism that he was not prepared to advise the film because he was financially tied to next year's Aaron Sorkin-written Steve Jobs film. Kutcher was "disingenuous," says Woz.

The co-founder also added that the script was already in place and therefore there was no way for him to take creative control.

"I'm grateful to Steve for his excellence in the i-era, and his contribution to my own life of enjoying great products, but this movie portrays him having had those skills in earlier times," Woz concluded.

I completely agree Bluesguy...I'm sick to death of seeing crApple products pushed on me no matter where I look: Wired magazine seems to think they're some godlike objects, while every time you see a tablet on TV or in movies it MUST be a MAXiPad. Does ANYONE bother watching trends anymore...Android OS controls 80% of the world's market share, and now even Windblows OS has overtaken crApple in Latin America? Open your eyes people...they've been far too greedy for far too long, and they hope the die a horrible flaming death for it!

Unfortunately, the "creative" sectors that put Apple devices in everything on TV require no computer literacy whatsoever, and pay enough that constantly replacing overpriced garbage isn't an issue. These people still think iPhones are amazing because they can get EMAIL ON THEIR PHONE...WOW! The same applies to a lot of the music industry...a $3000 MacBookPro does the job of GENERATING AUDIO just fine (as long as they use a USB sound card and don't run anything in the background) what could they possibly gain by getting a PC that is just as good, but with better audio, a bigger screen, and a price 80% lower...other than more capable (AKA difficult to learn everything) software of course?

Of course, the only thing that any of that ignorance has to do with Steve Jobs is the fact that he was an incredible salesman. He could sell yellow snow to a Polar Bear and do such a great job of it that the Polar Bear would go around insulting the Penguins for their free white snow. Something tells me he isn't burning in Hell; instead the Devil is using him to get people to sell their souls for pencils or something.
