The drumroll for Steve Jobs continues.
It’s the 2:20-minute scene in the second act where Steve Wozniak (Seth Rogen) tells Steve Jobs (Michael Fassbender) that his NeXT workstation will be the single biggest failure in the history of personal computing.
One caution: We all know that Apple didn’t steal the Mac’s graphical user interface from Xerox PARC. It’s one of many places where Aaron Sorkin’s script departs from reality for dramatic effect. Try not to let that spoil the movie for you.
Steve Jobs opens wide on Oct. 23.
Meanwhile, the analysts’ estimates for Apple’s fiscal Q4 have started to roll in. We’ll get to them soon enough.
