Apple Founder Slams Steve Jobs Movie
Steve Wozniak says biopic starring Ashton Kutcher is 'totally wrong'...
The co-founder of computer giant Ashton Kutcher.
Speaking to Gizmodo, he described the opening clip - recently released on the web - as "totally wrong".
He said it was: "Not close... we never had such interaction and roles... I'm not even sure what it's getting at.
"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.
"Steve came from selling surplus parts at HalTed he always saw a way to make a quick buck off my designs (this was the 5th time). The lofty talk came much further down the line."
And he continued: "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."
Titled jOBS, the movie closes the Sundance Film Festival tomorrow and opens in cinemas later in the year.
