Cringely's Lost Jobs Interview: Coming To a Theater Near You 206

from the no-1984-runners-allowed dept.
A few weeks ago, Robert X. Cringely revealed that a long-lost, hour-long interview he conducted of Steve Jobs in 1995 had been found. Now, it seems the lost tape has found its calling: the movies. Says the linked Economic Times story: "The interview will be shown at Landmark theaters in 19 cities around the country beginning Nov 16."

    All this news about Steve Jobs is getting rather boring and repetitive.

    What's wrong with making money off Jobs' death? Apple made a ton, and so did his biographer. Apple even timed the release of the iPhone to it to maximize exposure (and profits).

    Wow, you came so close to making a somewhat rational post ... then you had to toss it all away with the Apple timed the release of the iPhone thing.

    Any cinema of repute would refuse to show material sourced from a VHS.

    I just wish there were stories that put his innovation into perspective: he didn't do anything other than latch onto others creations and sell it.

    Steve Jobs was nothing more than a salesmen. A very good salesmen, but a salesmen never the less. True innovators usually go unnoticed because they're not good at self promotion and sales - usually.

    If he were to have settled somewhere else other than Silicon Valley, he would probably have a successful used car dealership or would have been a mortgage broker that contributed to this past real estate meltdown. Or maybe a timeshare salesmen. You know he could have sold ski resort timeshares in the South West desert.

    I think you mean 'neither'.

    Most people are just not that interesting.

    Read the Biography. Jobs was much more than a salesman. He was intimately involved with the design of products from the Mac forward. Starting with the Mac he was constantly insisting on changes to the radius of curves in the plastic, he made so many suggestions about the design of the Mac Calculator that the engineer wrote a Calculator Construction kit, so Jobs could tweak the design until it was just right (which he did and this was the calculator for the next decade).

    These are just a couple of anecdotes, and there are many out there, but it isn't the anecdotes that bring this home. You really need to read the biography to really understand the bigger picture of Steve Jobs.

    Calling him just a salesman, is pure ignorance in action. Jobs was more intimately involved in product design than any CEO of his generation.
