    I am not sure, but I was just wondering if that movie was accurate?

    Did they change events just to make that movie watchable, or
    was it accurate?

    from what ive been told from my parents who have been in the apple business for over 17 years said that it was pretty accurate. im sure little things here and there were changed but i think all of it was true.

    as far as accuracy goes, Woz has always maintained that it's fairly accurate, just minor details confused...

    and dvd... i'm sure it will be resold eventually, there are other movies TNT will want to release first, i'm sure... for a while it might be one of those things to keep a legacy VCR around for :)

    I was just bumming around Woz.org, and i found a letter from a foreigner that didn't know what Pirates was, and Woz offered to send him a DVD of it-- so at very least, Woz has DVDs of it. You might try looking around his website to see if he sells it, or contact his people to see if you can buy one--

    but the movie put a negative spin on everybody but the woz

    but of the four main characters of the movie, the woz was the only real "employable" techie while the others were merely dabblers by comparison

    in my networking class i teach for adult students, one of my students used to belong to the homebrew club that woz was in and he really respected him for his abilities
