Wozniak On Jobs Biopic: "Totally Wrong"

It seems clear that the producers of Open Road Films' Steve Jobs biopic iJobs, starring Ashton Kutcher, never consulted Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak about the movie. Wozniak has seen only the clip of the film that has been uploaded on YouTube, and, in two emails to the Gizmodo tech site, has pronounced it Totally wrong. In fact, he said, he was embarrassed by the entire clip. What actually happened in real life, he said, is that he had been inspired by the values of the Homebrew Computer Club to build an affordable computer. Steve J. wasn't around and didn't attend the club, he pointed out. Steve came from selling surplus parts at HalTed [and] always saw a way to make a quick buck off my designs. As for how he himself was portrayed in the film by Josh Gad: I never looked like a professional. We were both kids. Our relationship was so different than what was portrayed. ... I never wore a tie back then. I wore blue jeans and the same style blue button-up shirt every day of my life. Nevertheless, Wozniak indicated that he will reserve final judgment until he sees the entire movie. The fact that it didn't happen is unimportant. The important thing is whether the meaning portrayed is correct. ... But this is only one short clip of the movie. The entire movie may be very good. It is due to be screened as the closing feature at the Sundance Film Festival on Sunday.
