    Au contraire! In August of 2000, after I saw the movie, I emailed the Woz and actually got a reply. Here is what he said:



    <strong>Close to the truth in terms of key personalities and issues and conflicts

    that were part of the evolution of our industry.



    Actual incidents could never be portrayed very close to perfectly. That

    means sets or people present or timing.



    The significance of what was shown is debatable. I believe it's very good

    though.

    Any more details? There's so much rumor about this particular Jobs trait, I wonder how true?

    I saw it on VCD format and you can borrow the VHS tape version from library too. That's what I got.
