    Can anyone tell me if there is any movies dealing with Apples history in any way...ie: Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, or documentaries of any kind? Whatever you know of ...be it fiction or non fiction.

    Thanks.

    Pirates of Silicon Valley
    http://alt.tnt.tv/movies/tntoriginals/pirates/

    with Noah Wyle (Dr. Carter from ER) playing steve jobs... and Anthony Michael Hall as Bill Gates...

    entertaining - a fair amount of dramatization from my understnadring - but fun to watch. Not sure if you can buy it anywhere though...

    The Pirates of Silicon Valley is one of my favorites. It is mostly non-fiction with a bit of fiction thrown in. I bought a copy at Media Play a few months ago. (arn beat me to the post by 30 seconds)

    You should be able to find Pirates at blockbuter in the drama section. I enjoyed the movie but I admit there was a lot of inaccuracies. Take a look at woz.org, he says a lot about what was wrong with the movie. Fun movie though, especially when Bill Gates gets drunk and wrecks his friend's car.

    I went to that site. It only proves that PC users have no real points against Mac users. The posts are truly pathetic: I don't like Jeff Goldblum so macs are gay, PCs do stuff so macs are gay, PCs are gray so macs are gay. No one waste their time here unless they want a good laugh.
