The Steve Jobs Movie Through Microsoft Eyes
By Richard Hay for Windows Observer
A long time Microsoft loyalist shares his thoughts on The Steve Jobs movie.–PC Pitstop
I have just returned from seeing the new movie Jobs starring Ashton Kutcher as Apple CEO Steve Jobs.
We have been hearing about this movie for quite some time now and it has finally hit the big screen with a nationwide release.
Since seeing more of the trailers as they were released over the last few months I have had a growing interest in seeing this movie.
Now you know from this site, my podcast and of course my Twitter timeline that I am a Microsoft Guy. I use Microsoft products and when I am looking for a piece of technology or software to fill a need I look first to Microsoft options.
However, one thing I have always tried to do, and think I have been successful with, is not faulting others for their own technology choices. If something works for you then use it and if that includes brand loyalty then so be it.
My first observation is that I think this movie is not going to do well at the box office. There were less than 20 people in the theater watching the movie and there were not huge crowds waiting to get into the next showing as we came out.
The release of a new iPhone this event most certainly was not.
