Bloomberg Game Changers, a new documentary series from Bloomberg Television that debuted last week with an episode on Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, will this week turn its attention to Apple CEO Steve Jobs. Airing this Thursday, October 14th at 9:00 PM Eastern Time, the documentary will offer an overview of his career and feature clips from interviews with a number of Jobs' associates over the years.
How did this college dropout create what has been called the most admired company in the world? This week's episode of "Bloomberg Game Changers" reveals the many layers of the intensely private Steve Jobs - from his style of leadership and management to his creative process.

From the start-up years in the Jobs' family garage to his recent transplant surgery and release of the revolutionary iPad, Bloomberg Television's one-hour special examines Job's early success and subsequent exile from Apple, his failure at NeXT, his redemption at Pixar and his triumphant return to the company he created.

Featuring interviews with Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak; former Apple CEO John Scully; journalist turned venture capitalist Michael Moritz; Dreamworks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg; former Apple "Mac Evangelist" and Silicon Valley entrepreneur Guy Kawasaki and Robert X Cringely, technology journalist and former Apple employee.
Those unable to view the program on television should be able to view at least part of the episode through Bloomberg's site within a couple of days of the original airing.

"Steve Jobs does not care what you think."

Yes he does. The most recent example is putting buttons back on the shuffle.

He wants us to buy his shiny thin metal iDevices, but in order to do that, we have to like it. A buttonless device that only works with <1% of headphones is not a good product.

But, anyway, the documentary should be interesting. Jobs' life/life story is fascinating anyway.

NeXT was a total failure? How can that be since Apple bought NeXT? I know some of their early computers were not consumer friendly but they weren't suppose to be.

What us intriguing to ne is the incessant pigeonholing of individuals based on their completion or lack of completion of a college degree. I have an MBA, but I could have easily taught myself the same things. The MBA just provided structure and a timeline. Steve Jobs would have been successful at a degree also but chose a different path.
Good for him!

Can anyone watch Bloomberg online or do you need to have a US ip-adress? Doesn't matter to me since I've got an VPN but it would probably be useful for others.

Yuck

IMO, these shows almost always suck. They are filled with interviews with people we care nothing about, saying what a God Steve is. Over and over.
I'm interested in Steve Jobs. I'm not interested in what other people have to say about him.
It's almost sickening to watch the ass kissing that goes on.

Haha, it is quickly becoming like a white rino! :)

Not to mention it spawned the creation of the web and is the software foundation of every product Apple sells today! :cool:

I would like to learn more about Steve as an actual person. What are his beliefs? What things are important to him in life? What kind of a family man is Steve? The things we don't hear about. I think that would be interesting!

Steve refined his prowess at recruiting the BEST individuals to reshape the computing industry with NeXT endeavor. in many ways he was able to see the industry changing while doing the NeXT episode - as I refer to it - and when Apple needed him most he returned and gave Apple the umph it needed with the hot injection of NeXT Step!!

I'm getting ROYALLY PISSED because too much media is focused on the web ONLY at USA users!!!
