TRAILER: Steve Jobs Movie

Steve Wozniak hates the movie. From CNN:
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak hasn't seen "jOBS," the biopic of his founding partner that premiered Friday at the Sundance Film Festival.

But in terms of how well the movie tells the story of Apple's heady early days, his review is already in.
"It's so awful and atrocious," said Wozniak, who said he got access to a copy of the movie's script. "Unlike the way Steve and I really dealt with each other.

"I didn't want to have much to do with that movie."
Sounds like Jobswas  much more a hardcore entrepreneur than the "social do gooder" that the movie portrays:
Speaking Wednesday at Georgia State University in Atlanta, Wozniak said he's also watched a scene from the movie that was released online. In it, Wozniak says "nobody wants to buy a computer" as Jobs tries to convince him of the potential.
"Never happened," Wozniak said.

He elaborated last week in an e-mail to Gizmodo:

"Totally wrong. Personalities and ... the ideas of computers affecting society did not come from Jobs ... . His idea was to make a $20 PC board and sell it for $40 to help people... build the computer I'd given away ... . [H]e always saw a way to make a quick buck off my designs (this was the 5th time). The lofty talk came much further down the line."
