I’ve read a number of reviews after first watching Funny or Die’s new production “iSteve”. It is being slammed for inaccuracies and for being a parody catering to fan boys.
Yeah, all of that is accurate literally. Metaphorically it is brilliant and will likely be the most accurate telling of the Steve Jobs story ever. Sure, they left out critical long stretches of his life building Next Computer where the current Mac operating system came from and from his time with Pixar. One thing they could have stressed more is how the Macintosh was designed from the ground up with the intent of merging electronics with the humanities; that the motion picture industry, the music industry, and the publication industry mainly use the Macintosh as their essential computer tool. I bought the original Macintosh back in 1984 and have never understood the fuss about the PC and Windows. Finally the world is starting to get it.
The iSteve Movie is 80 minutes long. Watch it if you can spare the time.
