"jOBS" is probably rolling over in his grave at the terrible naming of this film.

Lets just hope he has a reason to stop rolling once the film is actually out...

If he's rolling in his grave, it's more likely Tim Cook's fault, not this movie or the title.

Curious to see this movie; I wonder how closely it follows reality, and if there are going to be some interesting little-known facts revealed.

What's with that name :confused: I dunno if it's supposed to look clever or something... But it looks like a typo to me. Should have just called it 'jobs'.

Quote: "also stars Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine".

Yes, it's officially a "B" movie.

...actually, I'm quite keen to see it.

something tells me it will probably turn out better than the official Sony film.:eek:

This one looks to me more like it was done out of a love for Apple and Jobs. Sony's looks to me like it was done to make a quick buck. I expect I'll prefer jOBS (but I agree all caps or all lowercase would have looked better for a title... I feel like an electrical engineer must have written the title; no one else uses lowercase j's to mimic lowercase i's.)

It'll be at the theatre and not the cinema? Then I might have to go see this.

I think 'steve' or 'sTEVE' would have been a good names.

It's glaringly obvious it's because of the iGadgets, iSoftware and iOS that are his legacy and even if that didn't sink in, the fact a lower case J and a lower case I are similar from the top of the letters makes it a no brainer why they did that.

Not that bad, besides the fact that "rolling" or "grave" are irrelevant in the case of Mr. Job's disposition...(kinda hard when you're a pile of cremated remains). ;)

I'll admit it isn't the best name, but it's stylized for a very specific group of people. If you don't understand the stylization then you are not one of the elite few.

I guess the movie name is supposed to remind people of how Apple puts a lowercase "i" in front of all of their products. Although it still would look better if it were "iJobs" or just "jobs"

This is not a biopic, it is set on an alternate reality where Kelso from that 70's show grew up to create Apple computer.

I think I'll pass. I'll probably watch the Sony movie instead.

Always wondered why they had decided to name it 'jOBS'. Guess its not just me then!

Some of us don't like the title.
Some of us don't understand the capitalization.
I hate Ashton Kutcher!
Josh Gad, who?
Someone will post many examples explaining why we shouldn't like Steve Jobs.
Somebody else will cite all of his innovations and positive influence on the industry.
Many will judge this film to be crap and swear to never see it.

How about we copy paste the comments from every other thread about this, or just wait till the film is actually released?

If Mr. Jobs were actually able to roll over in his grave, I think he would more likely be scratching desperately at the inside of his coffin.
