According to an email Wozniak sent to Gizmodo, the interaction between Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak shown in the first scene to be released from the biopic JOBS is “totally wrong”.
“Totally wrong. Personalities and where the ideas of computers affecting society did not come from Jobs. They inspired me and were widely spoken at the Homebrew Computer Club. Steve came back from Oregon and came to a club meeting and didn’t start talking about this great social impact. His idea was to make a $20 PC board and sell it for $40 to help people at the club build the computer I’d given away … Our relationship was so different than what was portrayed. I’m embarrassed but if the movie is fun and entertaining, all the better. Anyone who reads my book iWoz can get a clearer picture.” » JOBS Movie Clip Is “Totally Wrong” According To Steve Wozniak
