Pirates of Silicon Valley

[ #16950 ]
I finally got around to watching this movie (I had a coupon for a free rental). It was interesting, though it felt more like a dramatic reenactment than an actual movie. If it's even remotely close to actual events, Steve Jobs is an even bigger asshole than I originally thought.

Frankly, I don't know what people ever saw in the guy. A slave driver with no technical skills that I'm aware of, he merely drove Steve Wozniak's creation into the spotlight. That being said, I'd still like a Mac (though I wasn't interested in one until OS X).

  • Yes, he drove it in the spotlight. That is what he is the best at: taking a great product and turning it into a commercial success. That's what people see in him: he's a great businessman.
