Steve Wozniak On The iJOBS Movie Preview: “Totally Wrong,”


The first extended clip from iJOBS, the film about Steve Jobs‘ early years starring Ashton Kutcher, was released today and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has already weighed in, saying the minute-long scene  is “totally wrong.”

“Totally wrong,” Woz told Gizmodo, after seeing the preview.

Not close…we never had such interaction and roles…I’m not even sure what it’s getting at…personalities are very wrong although mine is closer…don’t forget that my purpose was inspired by the values of the Homebrew Computer Club along with ideas of the value of such machines and Steve J. wasn’t around and didn’t attend the club so he was the one learning about such social impact of the future.

Personalities and where the ideas of computers affecting society did not come from Jobs. They inspired me and were widely spoken at the Homebrew Computer Club. Steve came back from Oregon and came to a club meeting and didn’t start talking about this great social impact. His idea was to make a $20 PC board and sell it for $40 to help people at the club build the computer I’d given away…The lofty talk came much further down the line. I never looked like a professional. We were both kids. Our relationship was so different than what was portrayed. I’m embarrassed but if the movie is fun and entertaining, all the better. Anyone who reads my book iWoz can get a clearer picture.
