I saw the Steve Jobs interview movie by Robert X. Cringely today. For die-hard Apple fans it doesn’t contain any new information. But most stories about Steve Jobs are related second or third hand. This is a rare opportunity to see and hear the man himself. Very entertaining, and definitely worth watching if you get the chance.
There’s also an interesting and geeky story behind the movie. The full interview was thought to be lost for many years, until a VHS copy surfaced. With sophisticated image processing the VHS tape was used to create a movie that was watchable on the large screen of a movie theater. No small feat. It was very evident that the source material was not high definition, but it was not too distracting. Maybe that was because of the entertaining subject, or the reality distortion field coming through.
