I'd watch an hour long autobiography of Jobs on The History Channel and that's about it but I certainly wouldn't waste my time or money on his biopic, I'd rather watch a biopic of Einstein, Franklin or even Isaac Newton and Thomas Alva Edison for that matter, at least they all helped or benefited mankind in some way. Apart from make money and threaten people with their jobs (is that a pun?), what did he do to benefit mankind?

Because the majority of their fan base is obsessed with a man whom they have no true painted picture of who he REALLY was. So to encourage the fanatic fans they create a movie to make him seem like the golden egg of an entire technology era. Fact is he was pretty cold-hearted and has no evidence of donating even 1% of what he had in the bank. Apparently our society places people like Steve Jobs on a pedestal while dismissing true hero's of our time.
