    Wozniak seems to have learned the importance of focus.



    See the contents of his backpack for proof.







    ????

     

    So you are pointing out a nearly 3 year old picture of Woz's crap? LOL

    But today it's all about God Steve. You Job zealots should be happy Woz doesn't step up and demand his props. That would really deflate the Jobs as Messiah ideal.

     

    Woz isn't as compelling as Jobs.

    The problem with doing the main campus is some idiot turned the front lawn where we played Volleyball into a piece of shit concrete block.



    You didn't have to do a fucking thing to those buildings. Just move in and your company would be cool.



    Oh and throw in some quality leather Italian furnishings, as the Kitchen was awesome, the glass doors everywhere with waist level frost looks and more made the place a dream spot for work.



    It's now owned and run by http://www.oncomed.com/Overview.html

    They turned 900 Chesapeake Dr over to a split office space [2nd Floor Support.com] and the adjoining 800 Chesapeake Dr into Oncomed.



    Just sad.



    We had Sega and others inside that complex.



    I was at NeXT headquarters for three days way back, as part of the stringent reseller authorization process - this included meeting Steve for about an hour in a conference room on the second floor I think, long glass wall along the hallway. He went on about his vision for computing in future (whiteboard, Venn diagram). What was funny, after almost 30 minutes of Steve's monologue, the owner of my company (there were four of us invited out) said very calmly to Jobs, "Steve, this is very interesting butI think you are wrong.." It was hilarious, because the senior NeXT acolytes on the other side of the conference table went silently apoplectic. But in reality, Steve was interested in hearing why, and started a long, respectable conversation about the computing industry. We were authorized.

     

    The Redwood City headquarters was a very nice building. Also took the factory tour, where it was my first, up-close view of a solder bath....oooooohhhhhhh.....:)

    Well, DiCaprio and Bale were both tied to the part earlier, but each bowed out of consideration is the unofficial talk.

     

    My vote was for Bale long before any rumors about him - thought he would be outstanding in the role, and physically could look much more like Jobs. But 'dems the breaks...

     

    If the writing is compelling, and Fassbender nails the essence of Jobs, it will probably work.

    How about we wait and see what the performance is like people. Acting <> impersonation.



    I'm with you. Harrison Ford never looked anything like Rick Dekkard either but he did a brilliant job. :-)
