JobsDVD - 2013
"...keeps surprising you with ideas and innovation."--New York Daily News
"A biopic that's perhaps too respectful of the tech icon's innovations still remains frequently engaging."--Hollywood Reporter
A riveting story of a true American visionary, a man who let nothing stand in the way of greatness. It chronicles the iconic innovator and entrepreneur's early days. He was a college dropout who co-founded Apple Computer Inc. and was then forced to leave. More than a decade later, Jobs returns and single-handedly sets a course that will turn the once-tiny startup into one of the world's most valuable companies. His epic journey blazes a trail that changes technology-and the world-forever.

We're gonna put a dent in the universe. Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes, the ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.

When you grow up, you tend to get told the world is the way that it is, your life is just to live
your life inside the world and try not to bash into the walls too much. But that's a very limited life. Life can be much broader, once you discover one simple fact. And that is that
everything around you that you call life was made up by people that are no smarter than you. And you can change it. You can influence it. You can build your own things, that other people can use. It's to shake off this erroneous notion that life is just there, and you're just gonna live in it, versus embrace it. Change it' Improve it. Make your mark upon it. And once you learn that, you'll never be the same again.

Mike: That's right. The shareholders don't see past their own shadows. They're only concerned about the here and the now. And the Board has got blinders on. If they could see you they'd take them off, they'd see you the way I see you. The way your employees see you.
Okay, Jef. Let's get a couple things straight. We don't do fine. And we don't accept things

chosen to do this So let's make it great.

Because it's got bravado. It's social status. No, you know what? It's even more than that. It's social currency. We've raised the bar. And if we want to stay there, we gotta risk everything.

Because what it represents is as important as what it is. It's a tool for the heart. And when you can touch someone's heart, that's limitless. If I do say so myself, it's insanely cool. It's a music player. It's a thousand songs in your pocket. I'd like to introduce you to the iPod.
