    So when Wozniak read the book and found out jobs had stitched him up on the 50/50 split for the stuff he did for atari, he cried. Jobs was a nasty piece of work from day one, poor old Wozniak, what a decent man he is.

    Missed the first half hour, but the second part of it was interesting.

    In general, the BBC do this sort of stuff pretty well.

    Would highly recommend watching this if you missed it. I found out quite a few new things I never knew. Really good documentary!

    I really enjoyed that, I think they showed how great Steve Jobs helped Apple become without getting too sychophantic about it.

    Try and watch it on iPlayer if you missed it.

    Thanks very much for posting this link, but alas, I'm in Ireland, and can only get BBC iPlayer on radio, not TV. (I've just checked this out, having followed your link).

    Nevertheless, needless to say, I would be more than interested in being able to watch the entire documentary at some stage.....

    In any case, I have ordered the SJ biography and it is now waiting for me in my local bookshop - as one of a number of books to read over the Christmas break, in a way.

    It should have been half an hour longer. Good stuff though.

    Just watched this on iPlayer, very good documentary, flattered Apple and I never knew he shouted at Steve Jobs like that!! haha.
    It was also interesting to learn how he met Mr Ives as I thought he designed the iPod first!! :eek:

    I knew everything else already but it presented it in a really good balanced way. I'd advise people to watch it, don't worry it's not like 9to5mac have stated, it doesn't slag off Apple or Jobs :rolleyes:

    I do find it ironic how Jobs own beliefs are what could have potentially killed him, believing he could 'cure himself' rather then have the operation to remove the cancer.

    Anyway, good programme.

    A good well balanced documentary.

    Didn't have a lot of 'meat' on it, but it was good to see interviews with people like Sculley - and Stephen Fry is always good value.

    A good programme to watch for anyone who's read the biography, as it puts faces to names.
