Posted by WPC on - -



With the official release date for the eagerly awaited Steve Jobs Biopic just few days from today (April 19) for the U.S. market, we thought we share with you the movie trailer and stills from the movie set. With a lot of controversy surrounding the cast of the movie, we can't wait to see what Ashton and Josh Gad (who is playing Jobs right-hand man Steve Wozniak) can deliver.

The biopic was first released on Jan. 25, 2013 during the Sundance Film Festival and so far has a 5.7 rating out of 10 based on 924 reviewers on IMDB , so lets see if public opinion will change once it is released to the general public.

About Steve Jobs

Posted by WPC on - -




Steven Paul "SteveJobs (February 24, 1955 – October 5, 2011)[5] was an American computer entrepreneur and inventor. He was co-founder,[6]chairman, and chief executive officer of Apple Inc.[7] Jobs also previously served as chief executive of Pixar Animation Studios; he became a member of the board of directors of The Walt Disney Company in 2006, following the acquisition of Pixar by Disney. He was credited in Toy Story (1995) as an executive producer.[8]
In the late 1970s, Jobs—along with Apple co-founder Steve WozniakMike Markkula[6] and others—designed, developed, and marketed one of the first commercially successful lines of personal computers, the Apple II series. In the early 1980s, Jobs was among the first to see the commercial potential of Xerox PARC's mouse-driven graphical user interface, which led to the creation of the Macintosh.[9][10] After losing a power struggle with the board of directors in 1985, Jobs resigned from Apple and founded NeXT, a computer platform development company specializing in the higher-education and business markets. Apple's subsequent 1996 buyout of NeXT brought Jobs back to the company he co-founded, and he served as its CEO from 1997 until August 2011.[11]
In 1986, he acquired the computer graphics division of Lucasfilm Ltd, which was spun off as Pixar Animation Studios.[12] He remained CEO and majority shareholder at 50.1 percent until its acquisition by The Walt Disney Company in 2006.[13] Consequently Jobs became Disney's largest individual shareholder at 7 percent and a member of Disney's Board of Directors.[14][15] On August 24, 2011, Jobs announced his resignation from his role as Apple's CEO.
On October 5, 2011, Jobs died in California at age 56, seven years after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.[16] The cause of death has not yet been officially confirmed,[17] but is generally believed to be pancreatic cancer.[18][19]
At the time of his resignation, and again after his death, he was widely described as a visionary,[20] pioneer[21] and genius [20][22][23] - perhaps one of the foremost[24][25] - in the field of business,[25][24][26] innovation,[19] and product design,[27] and a man who had "profoundly" [28] changed the face of the modern world,[19][22][21] revolutionized at least six different industries,[20][19] and an "exemplar for all chief executives".[20][25][26] His death was widely mourned[29][30] and considered a loss to the world by commentators across the globe.[23]
