    Not another one!

    Well, yes, another one, apparently.

    Every Hollywood male actor aged 22 through 78 must appear in a Steve Jobs movie.

    If not, no Oscar. Ever.

      I'm surprised Morgan Freeman hasn't played Jobs yet, he does a good messiah.

        I thought Morgan Freeman was more God than Messiah?

        Make up your own second sentence using:

        Freeman

        Jobs

        God

        Messiah

        Not necessarily in that order.

        Jobs wasn't the messiah, he was a very naughty CEO...

    Finally

    A pure work of fiction for 2015.

      FTFY, wolfetone

      A pure work of fiction for 2015. .... wolfetone

      A pure work of faction has fictions elevated to realisations via virtualisation means and ..... the sublime micro management of macro memes.

      And is that in what would be surely highly classified, and easily considered and classed as just a sophisticated global media operation, the present reality of the process of cycling events and unfolding news tales which are used to construct the visions which deliver the future its temporary existence ..... para-permanence in the brains and consciousnesses of the masses and the plebiscitary?

    I'll wait

    Steves not dead though.

    I saw him in a Lenovo advert recently.

    Checked the cast on IMDB

    I see no Bill Gates. Are they skipping that bit of his story?

    Steve Jobs Shrines Business

    ......how about a shrine in the form of the garage where the two Steves created Apple? With Jobs looking over Wozniak's shoulders telling him to work faster?

  8. Bob Dole (tm)

    Saw the first one. It was actually enjoyable but seriously - shouldn't they wait like 10 years before doing a remake? I know we are used to seeing the same story formulas over and over again but do we really need to see the exact same story over and over again?

  9. Nanners

    Another one?

    what the hell is wrong with Hollywood?

  10. OzBob

    Jeez, wasn't Tom Cruise available?

    And forget the Jobs, who has played the definitive "Woz"?

  11. Mr.Mischief

    So the "Jesus making" starts.

    I mean isn't this how a normal guy with some good ideas became shrouded in myth and elevated to messiah status?

    In a hundred years, people will look to these moves as a documentary while the new religions begin.

  12. Nameless Faceless Computer User

    I would rather see a movie about the engineers and designers who made the Apple toys, not the nasty CEO they had to work for.
