    They'll have to release it as an iTunes download or on a USB stick instead of DVD or new iMac owners will miss out.

    This had all the makings of a blue screen of death from the get-go.


     


    The money paid to Kutcher alone would have been enough to produce the definitive documentary on Steve Jobs. That's something I'd pay to see.

    Interesting in that it can't possibly cover meaningful material and yet they assume it will? 




    Maybe the story will be told in flashback. A few minutes of "getting ready for the presentation" and then someone goes, "Remember when we had [problem] with [product]?" Ripple fade back to…

    I'll admit, such a concept certainly won't be a sweeping biopic, but I don't think he's aiming for that.  Those are each interesting moments, and while the conversations taking place may well make too many references to things Mac fans know and many in the public may not, if handled well it could make for a very interesting movie.



    Sorkin can fit about 5 hours of dialogue into 90 minutes.
