Lots of misspelled words, dude.  Good article though…

I’m a big Apple history buff, so I’m definitely looking forward to it despite Ashton Kutcher.

If this movie is going to be based off of the Steve Jobs book, its going to be a disappoint.  Isaacson’s book was an interesting read.  However his section of Steve Jobs first job at Atari before going onto form Apple Computer in the book turns out to be lacking a lot of important and key events, or really a better perspective of who Jobs really was early in his career…

A new book that just came out to celebrate Atari’s 40th anniversary of PONG has a far more revealing and informative insight into Jobs time at Atari including input from Wozniak too, now available on Amazon its called Atari Inc Business is Fun and it is an 800 page testament to every facet of a company just as iconic and as an important in Silicon Valley History.
