Ashton Kutcher played the role of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs in the movie jOBS. Kutcher applied a method acting technique to the role, which means that he tried to apply the emotions, thoughts, and essence of their characters. Kutcher even took on the same diet Jobs had, which involved eating only fruit. This ended up putting Kutcher in the hospital.

The jOBS movie will be arriving in April. Ashton Kutcher (as Steve Jobs) and Josh Gad (as Steve Wozniak) will be promoting the movie at Macworld in San Francisco. A preview from the movie recently aired, but Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak said that it is an inaccurate portrayal of how him and Steve Jobs interacted with each other. Wozniak said that they never had such interaction and roles in the clip below. Below is a statement that he sent to Gizmodo.
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak will be a playable video game character with “Machete” star Danny Trejo in an iOS game called Danny Trejo’s Vengeance “Woz with a Coz.” The game is expected to be launched on or before November 22nd. Trejo and Wozniak will be fighting against bad guys in the game to promote Mr. Trejo’s film coming out next year called Vengeance. In the game Steve Wozniak and Danny Trejo are teaming up to save Woz’s wife Janet that has been kidnapped.
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak founded the company after he partnered with Steve Jobs. Wozniak became a multi-millionaire because of how well Apple is doing today, but he is keen on becoming an Australian citizen because of the way that Internet is being rolled out there.

The BBC has created a documentary for former Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) co-founder Steve Jobs. The entire video is currently on YouTube, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it is taken down soon enough so I would watch it right away.

Last month I wrote about how the founding contract of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) was for sale on auction. The contract was signed by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne. Ronald Wayne had a chance to become a partner at Apple in 1976, but ended up selling his 10% stake in the company for $800. Today 10% of Apple would be worth $36.4 billion. In 1994, Ronald Wayne sold the founding contract of Apple for a few thousand dollars. Wade Saadi bought the contract from Wayne and sold it on Sotheby’s this week. The contract ended up selling for $1.6 million even though it was valued at $150,000. [BusinessInsider]
