Steve Jobs: Billion-Dollar Hippy (Enhanced DVD)
Steve Jobs is a veritable legend in the world of high tech consumer products. As head of Apple, he turned the company into a global brand. His name is virtually synonymous with user-friendly computer technology. One might believe that such a driven executive as Jobs would be unreachable. In the past, titans of industry were often aloof types. In contrast, Jobs remained a popular figure among consumers, both young and old, throughout his life. This documentary explains just how a laid-back, college dropout became a billionaire leader of a Fortune 500 company.
Under Jobs, Apple became the number one computer brand, while creating an image of the little entity fighting the bigger manufacturers. The film explores this "counter cultural" phenomenon well. Jobs, as viewers learn here, personified the constant battle of Apple to supplant the giants without losing its reputation for being cool. Interviews of such noted names as Steve Wozniak, who helped co found Apple, help provide the narrative details of the Jobs story.
This documentary is also a history of Apple. The audience learns how Jobs and his crew started the company in a garage. The story ends with the untimely death of this ambitious man in 2011.
For anyone interested in understanding how Apple became such a force in the world of technology, this film will help answer many questions.Steve Jobs: Billion-Dollar Hippy (Enhanced DVD)
