An anonymous reader writes "Variety is reporting that Ashton Kutcher – who you likely recognize from That 70s Show, Punked, and Two and a Half Men – has been tapped to play Apple co-founder Steve Jobs in an indie film titled 'Jobs', based on a script from Matt Whiteley. The film will chronicle Steve Jobs from wayward hippie to co-founder of Apple, where he became one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of our time."

you completely missed the point. "HE" didn't show anyone how to do anything right, some very bright engineers he has working for him showed MS and google how to do gizmo's right. why it is atributed to jobs has always mystified me as well, we don't revere other CEO's because they had some smart people working for them, why should jobs be any different?

Re:What's the hype? (5, Insightful)

Morty (32057) | more than 2 years ago | (#39546773)

Engineers design to specs and requirements. Jobs tended to specify the high-level requirements. The engineers who worked for him are very clear on this -- Jobs was a micromanager who pushed hard for certain elements of design and usability. The Jobs approach was unique, and resulted in the distinctive Apple products of the 70s, 80, and 2000s. Unlike most CEOs, Steve Jobs had a close personal hand in the the successes and failures of Apple.

NB: I'm not a big fan of either Jobs or Apple. But his contributions are pretty clear.

Re:What's the hype? (1)

jklovanc (1603149) | more than 2 years ago | (#39546955)

But when Jobs had his own company, Next, his micromanaging created the "perfect computer", in Steve Job's mind, that few could afford. He added hundreds of dollars to the price because he insisted that the case be a perfect cube and perfect cubes could only be manufactured by one company in the US.

Apple fired him once and re-hired him when that had a management team that could hold him in check. Steve jobs pushed harder on anything that could be patented to keep others out of the market, keep prices high and make more money for Steve Jobs. It was not about innovation but money. Steve Jobs is a marketer.

Re:What's the hype? (4, Insightful)

Morty (32057) | more than 2 years ago | (#39547021)

Sure, Steve Jobs made big mistakes, too. Not just the NeXT, either. During his original stint at Apple, the Apple Lisa was a total faillure. And he did some pretty nasty things in his personal life. He certainly wasn't perfect, and he made some pretty collosal mistakes. All that said -- Apple's major succcesses have come to significantly outweigh their failures, as evidenced by the current market for iPhones, iPads, etc. A lot of that success can be attributed almost directly to the vision and ideals of Steve Jobs. I'm not an Apple fan myself, but I can understand why the Apple fans revere him.

Re:What's the hype? (0)

Anonymous Coward | about 2 years ago | (#39547405)

Apple became successful when it became more like Microsoft. Big successful companies exist due to business decisions, not perfect products. Steve Jobs failed hard when he tried the "cutting edge products without business strategy" route. Steve Jobs was about as visionary as Bill Gates is. He did have a knack for design that Gates doesn't have, but they shared an intense business acumen and a rather trivial outlook on the technological future. "Creative entrepreneur" is a fitting title, if it means that the creativity is applied to the business. Regarding the products, Steve Jobs was demanding, not creative.

His failures made him who he was. (1)

alexander_686 (957440) | about 2 years ago | (#39547543)

Jobs had a lot of failures - and he was kicked out of Apple for good reasons. Next was also (financially) a failure.

Then came Pixar (a hardware company when Steve joined) and the turn around at Apple.

I am not a fanboy of Apple, but you have to respect what he did. He had a bold vision - which he always had. But then he executed and managed people to get there. He couldn't do that initially at Apple. He had to leave to mature.

Those were all products designed and developed at Apple, they were certainly not designed, developed or engineered by Jobs though, jobs was merely the CEO. So why do you believe the CEO should be revered for products created by some brilliant engineers that happened to work for him? why not revere the actual people that were the genius's that came up with the ideas and engineered the products?

Re:What's the hype? (3, Insightful)

MobileTatsu-NJG (946591) | more than 2 years ago | (#39546765)

It was his vision and it all started after his return.

You could make the same argument about George Lucas. When you liked Star Wars, it was Lucas and not McQuarrie, Kirshner, or Muren , and when the prequels came out it was Lucas and not Church or Tzu that took the blame. I realize the word 'Insightful' appears next to your post if you take Jobs down a notch, but that doesn't change the fact that if he didn't return, millions of households across the US woukd be very different today. This is inescapable no matter which word associated with him you redefine.

If you really think Steve wasn't that B of D, then you have to say Bill Gates wasn't, either. Go ahead, perjure yourself anonymously in case somebody wants to spend a mod-point on you. Educate me on how Steve wasn't really that involved even though his success was legendarily unique. The worst case scenario is I eat some humble pie and learn something in the process, I'll take those odds.

Re:What's the hype? (1)

Anonymous Coward | more than 2 years ago | (#39546831)

Gates had coding skill, and a pretty good eye for business; Jobs is a salesman (a very good salesman) and maybe a cult leader.

Re:What's the hype? (0)

Richard_at_work (517087) | more than 2 years ago | (#39546941)

He's 'revered' (your choice of words, not mine) because of *how* he went on to make all that money and drag Apple from the brink of bankruptcy and being a failed company to one of the largest and most successful companies in the world in just over a decade and a half.

It takes a die hard hater to not see the brilliance in his management of Apple from 1996 onward. He controlled the company a lot tigher than most CEOs would but made it work, and put in place a workplace environment that allowed other very significant minds to flourish (Ives is a heck of a good example - basically untouchable within Apple, reported to Jobs and had as much freedom as Jobs).

Re:What's the hype? (0)

Revered is the word used in the initial post about Ashton playing the part of Steve Jobs.

Because he made a company that's richer than most sovereign nations.

Re:What's the hype? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 2 years ago | (#39547129)

that he's responsible for the most successful tech company in the world is one, yeah, I know, Woz is a godking in these parts, but Apple didn't fall apart without Woz, but it came damn close to dying off before jobs returned. That's one.

He may not have designed the products themselves, but he knew good (and bad) design when he saw it, and ultimately any design required his approval, plus, he evidently knew how to run a business, there's another.

And third, I guess, since Larry Ellison has a bunch of movies about him (see the Iron Man franchise, I'm convinced the Tony Stark of the movies was modeled after Larry), it's only fair that Steve get one, too.

Steve Jobs could play Steve Jobs (e.g. the obvious LOTR where Andy Serkis portrays Gollum thanks to CGI) and we'd see the real Jobs face at any age (and would probably cost less than Kutcher ). The question is: is it likely that having Ashton Kutcher star in the movie will generate more profit? Or, in other words, are most people interested in seeing the real (but missing) Jobs life, or the very alive Ashton Kutcher?

which is what sums up the bullshit that IP laws are and how the rules are different. circumvent drm and sell the solution and you're thrown into jail now, do it with friends and you're thrown into jail for organized crime.

dud of a movie though if they don't include that, it's one of the most exciting times of woz and steve's careers - and it could contrast nicely with jobs yelling about ip theft and stealing pixars movies/pirating music in later stage in the movie, if they interlaced the scenes nicely.

And thousand of fanbois goes "nutso" because Ashton isn't "deep" enough to play first class prima donna Jobs :)

If serious about that (and I don't know if this ain't still April Fools) Ashton have really good look alike similarity to early Jobs, he has good screen energy (yeah, I know it gets wasted on lot of useless things, but still - he has charisma), and I guess he is really aching to prove himself as good actor. And material is interesting - Jobs was complex persona. Maybe it will work, I don't know.

Anyway, as any artistic rendering - you can watch it, you can pirate it, you can ignore it. Your choice.

"I'm a lousy human that is parasitic in nature and behavior, untrustworthy and deceitful. Yet WITH MY MOVIE you'll have a chance to wear the rosy colored buttplug that the fanboi's wear and sport a black turtleneck... THANKS TIM FOR FOLLOWING UP ON THE PROJECT!!!"

The focus of the movie will be the less-known romance Steve Jobs had with Ada Lovelace. That's why they chose Kutcher. He's the natural choice for something like that.

Well, (1)

...and in my head ABSOLUTELY I pictured Kutcher playing Jobs!

==============

Apple headquarters, main boardroom. It is full of executives in suits and ties.

John Sculley: Right, all those in favor, say 'aye'.

(all hands go up)

Everyone: Aye!!

(Steve enters, wearing jeans, sneakers, and a denim shirt. His hands are full.)

Steve: Alrighty, folks, I got pizzas and Shastas. Now let's get this meeting started! (silence.) What?

Front of the building.

(Steve is bum-rushed out the front doors. Lying on the ground, a large duffel bag is tossed to him. )

John Sculley: Just take your 400 million dollars and get out of our sight!

(The doors close as the executives walk away inside. Steve gets up, brushes himself off, picks up the bag.)

Steve: (yelling at the doors) Fine! I don't need you guys anyway! I'm gonna start another computer company that'll knock Apple on its ASS! It'll have PostScript-driven grayscale displays! Magnesium casings! I'll sell 'em to colleges for $10,000 each! AND THEY'LL BE GLAD TO PAY IT!
