New ‘Steve Jobs’ clip features an intense Woz berating Jobs

Jony Ive might not have any interest in seeing the Aaron Sorkin penned Steve Jobs biopic, but it’s a safe bet that the upcoming film will attract a lot of interest once it opens up to a widespread release later this month. In an effort to keep the hype train going, Universal Pictures yesterday put out yet another tantalizing clip from the film

Starring Seth Rogan as Woz, the clip below features Woz flat-out questioning just what in the world Steve Jobs does. Taking umbrage with Jobs’ condescension, Rogan goes off on Jobs and calls into question the skills, if any, he brings to the table. Not missing a beat, Jobs calmly fires back: “I play the orchestra. And you’re a good musician. You sit right there, you’re the best in your row.”

Never-before-seen video of Steve Jobs shows Apple co-founder’s softer side

Never-before-seen video of Steve Jobs shows Apple co-founder’s softer side

On the fourth anniversary of Steve Jobs’ death, ABC News obtained a never-before-seen video of Jobs which depicts a somewhat rare look at the former Apple CEO’s softer side. The video was provided by Apple and is perhaps intended to counteract some of the more negative depictions of the Apple co-founder that we’ve been seeing as of late in films such as Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine.

In the video below, filmed before a gathering of Apple employees the day before the iPhone was officially unveiled, we see a smiling and laid-back Jobs casually talking about his personal theory of business management, the iPhone, and even why he was prone to wear ripped jeans.

Steve Jobs convinced Mark Zuckerberg to travel to India when Facebook wasn’t doing well

Steve Jobs convinced Mark Zuckerberg to travel to India when Facebook wasn’t doing well

For some time now, Facebook has faced pressure to dramatically increase the size of its user base. As it stands today, Facebook has about 1.5 billion members across the globe, a figure which represents about 21% of the entire world’s population. Consequently, Facebook has long looked toward India as a surefire way to rapidly expand its global reach. With a population of over 1.5 billion people, India is the second most populous country in the world and clearly an important cog in Facebook’s continued expansion efforts.

The only problem is that the majority of people in India (an estimated 800 million) still don’t have Internet access. Facebook’s solution? Provide free Internet access to the masses.

So as part of Facebook’s ongoing effort to develop a working and amicable relationship with India, Mark Zuckerberg earlier this week hosted Indian Prime Minister Narenda Modi. If this at all sounds familiar, it’s because Modi over the past week has been on something of a Silicon Valley rockstar tour, sitting down for meetings with Tim Cook, newly minted Google CEO Sundar Pichai, and even Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

Aaron Sorkin rips Tim Cook for calling ‘Steve Jobs’ film opportunistic, quickly apologizes

Aaron Sorkin rips Tim Cook for calling ‘Steve Jobs’ film opportunistic, quickly apologizes

A few weeks ago, Apple CEO Tim Cook appeared on the new Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Over the course of an interesting 10 minute interview, Colbert asked Cook what he thought about the spate of Steve Jobs related films that were making their way into theaters.

Cook responded by saying that he was none too thrilled by all of the Steve Jobs portrayls he had seen thus far, emphasizing that they don’t accurately reflect “the man that I knew.”

Calling Jobs a great man, Cook said: “I think a lot of people are trying to be opportunistic and I hate this. It’s not a great part of our world.”

Watch: Brand new trailer for Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs movie

Watch: Brand new trailer for Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs movie

With a few weeks to go before the Aaron Sorkin penned Steve Jobs biopic hits the big screen, Universal Pictures earlier today released the second official trailer for the highly anticipated film about the Apple co-founder.

Notably, the film, naturally titled Steve Jobs, won’t be a traditional cradle to grave type of biopic. Instead, Sorkin, who knows a thing or two about storytelling, has crafted a film that will mostly focus on three of Jobs’ biggest product announcements, including the original Macintosh. Based on what we’ve seen so far in the two released trailers, the film will also touch a bit on how Jobs’ personal life helped shape his professional life and vice versa.

One anecdote shows how working for Steve Jobs could be an absolute nightmare

Late Apple cofounder Steve Jobs was a brilliant person… but he was also, by many accounts, a total nightmare to have as a boxx. If you want to get a sense of just how obnoxious Jobs could be to employees, consider the following anecdote shared by The New York Times’ Nick Bilton in which Jobs dressed down a waitress for failing to bring him the perfect glass of orange juice.

Aaron Sorkin’s awful-looking Steve Jobs movie has a new trailer

Aaron Sorkin’s awful-looking Steve Jobs movie has a new trailer

I try not to judge a book by its cover, but the more I see of the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic, the less I want to see it. Steve Jobs was a fascinating, brilliant, volatile leader in the industry, but with three films about the man all releasing within three years of one another, I think we might finally be oversaturated.

Watch the first trailer for new documentary ‘Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine’

We aren’t exactly thrilled with the first trailer for Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs, but thankfully, it isn’t the only Steve Jobs-related movie coming to theaters this year. In fact, Academy Award winner Alex Gibney’s documentary, Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine, is coming to select theaters nationwide on September 4th, a full month before Sorkin’s film. More →

This Story Perfectly Illustrates How Insanely Secretive Apple Was Under Steve Jobs

This Story Perfectly Illustrates How Insanely Secretive Apple Was Under Steve Jobs

The Apple of 2015 is a brand new Apple, with a culture that appears to be vastly different from how it was just a few short years ago. We’re not saying it’s any better or worse, but it’s clearly different. Steve Jobs’s Apple appeared from the outside to be all business all the time, and countless accounts we’ve read mirror that sentiment. Today, Apple executives are quite literally dancing in the streets.

It would be hard to argue that either approach is a bad one. Jobs’s Apple grew from the brink of bankruptcy to the top of the world, and Cook’s Apple has continued to grow, with a market cap that now sits at more than $720 billion.

Sometimes we forget how closed and secretive Jobs’s Apple really was though, and now a new story illustrates it perfectly. More →

Steve Jobs Quotes Serve as Valuable Life Lessons

In the world of tech, Steve Jobs was one of the rare people who quite literally had seen and done it all. For starters, Jobs played an instrumental role in the development of three game-changing tech products, the Mac, the iPod and of course the iPhone. These products not only turned Apple into a brand synonymous with innovation, but they fundamentally changed the way that we, as a society, interact with both technology and each other.

When Alex Gibney’s documentary, Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine, premiered earlier this year, Apple employees were displeased with the unflattering portrayal of their former boss.

What It's Like To Work For Steve Jobs

Ex-Apple Employee: Working for ‘Giant Jerk’ Steve Jobs was a Nightmare

Ex-Apple Employee: Working for ‘Giant Jerk’ Steve Jobs was a Nightmare

Earlier this week, a new account emerged from a supposed former Apple employee that revealed what it was like to work for Apple under Steve Jobs. The anonymous worker painted Jobs as a very demanding boss who worked his employees to the bone. Of course, we already knew that.

Now, however, we’re pointed to a new account from a former Apple employee who isn’t anonymous. The disgruntled former project manager suggests that not only was Jobs incredibly demanding, he was also a “giant jerk” who didn’t value his employees and who blamed others for his own mistakes. More →
