"Jobs" - Bio-pic on Steve Jobs, starring Ashton Kutcher Premiers Soon

Steve Jobs life and his impact on contemporary society is truly legendary. Now, in a promising new feature film, Steve's story is coming to theaters.

As Jobs and Apple's early marketing said, "Think Different." Some interesting thoughts from the man himself:

Of course, not everyone is thrilled about the movie, arguing that Jobs' life and accomplishments were so much more interesting than the movie makes them out to be. Specifically, we are shown the awed reverence for Jobs, without an understanding of how he got that to happen. Certainly, the life of Steve Jobs was a great opportunity for a truly compelling picture. And I am disappointed to learn the movie starts with the release of the iPod, and never progresses beyond 2006. Thus, the stratospheric rise of the company on the success of the iPhone and iPad are not part of the story. Nor, obviously, is Steve's passing.  And, that's a shame.

Despite those shortcomings, Apple fans will probably still enjoy the story. And for other great films about the rise of Jobs and the tech industry, it's worth checking out films like:

Pirates of Silicon Valley

The Social Network

Computer Chess
