Apple co-founder unhappy with portrayal in ‘jOBs’ film

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak questioned the accuracy of a long-awaited film about Steve Jobs as the movie opened with a red carpet premiere Friday, while its makers stressed it was not a documentary.

Wozniak said the movie “jOBS,” which opened at the Sundance Film Festival, erred in its depiction of the characters as well as the relationships among them, in particular between him and Jobs.

“We never had such interaction and roles,” Wozniak, who quit in 1987 after 12 years with Apple, told the tech blog Gizmodo after a clip from the movie was posted online ahead of the evening premiere.

The film, one of two about the Apple founder who died in 2011, will open in the United States in April. The second, which has no release date yet, is based on the biography published by Walter Isaacson shortly after Jobs’ death. AFP
