Jobs trailer: can this do justice to one of the most important people of the 20th century?

Very curious to see this. I think Steve Jobs is one of the most important people of the 20th century — the world would look very different without him, and what he brought to computers and design it’s hard to imagine someone else bringing. I mean, if Bill Gates hadn’t created Microsoft, someone else would have. But I don’t think anyone else could have created Apple, would have insisted on beautiful design and a focus on typography, among other unique aspects of the technology.

Anyway: I hope the movie captures this.

    Ashton Kutcher?!

    On the subject of whether or not there would be another Steve Jobs, I recommend “What the Dormouse Said” by John Markoff – it describes the atmosphere here in Silicon Valley at the time Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak started Apple. You raise a very debatable point (it could be repeated with Einstein for instance), seems like many pints are needed for that discussion.

    Microsoft was very Bill Gates – I think he too had a vision and personality, just a very different one. Who else thought of licensing out to everyone? Without the two, we would have to look at IBM or Hewlett Packard and go from there. Hang on, that’s what they did. Maybe there is only one possible reality: the one we have.

    I don’t like Kutcher as an actor very much, and the trailer doesn’t seem to focus on much besides making Jobs look like Jesus, but I’ll probably see this anyway, just so I can know how it turns out. Trailers have given me the completely wrong impression of a film’s content before, and I really hope this is one of those times.
