Pirates of Silicon Valley - The movie Who here has seen this movie? In case you aren't familiar with it, it was aired on a station called TNT not too long ago. I think it has been out for awhile. Anyway, it is about Bill Gates' and Steve Jobs' rise to fame and fortune. TNT basically turned this geeky story into a dramitization with many things that may look familiar if you've read up on some computer history before. I'd like to know what guys thought of it. Feel free to make whatever comments you'd like. But I'm most interested in knowing if Steve Jobs was really that much of jerk. I mean, come on... They make him out to be the great Satan of computers. He's always talking about control, shaping the future and people ect... Bill Gates was protrayed as more of a soft spoken, but terribly shrewd man who had quite a wild streak in his younger age. Steve Jobs in this movie was next to a nut, basically insisting upon computers being almost a relgiion. He had people working 90+ hour shifts and then he would make fun of the fact. He would also fly off the handle in a fit of abusive rage all the time. And apparently he had a child and a girlfriend that he totally disowned through his entire life until many, many years passed. How much of this is true? And pirate flags plastered everywhere at Apple? LoL. I thought that was rather strange.
