Something tells me Larry Ellison didn't rush out to see "Jobs" this weekend. But maybe he should have.
Last week, the Oracle CEO praised his longtime friend in a candid interview with Charlie Rose on "CBS This Morning," and painted a dreary picture of Apple in the process.
"They will not be nearly so successful because he's gone. He was brilliant. I mean, our Edison. He was our Picasso. He was an incredible inventor. ... We saw Apple with Steve Jobs (raises a finger high into the air). We saw Apple without Steve Jobs (lowers the finger). We saw Apple with Steve Jobs (raises his finger again). Now, we're gonna see Apple without Steve Jobs (holds the finger in the air for a moment before dropping it again)."
It may be true that Apple flourished when Steve Jobs came back and floundered during the decade he was gone, but to say Apple won't survive without him is to trivialize his impact on the design, direction and dogma of the company he founded.
If you were among those uncertain about former That '70s Show doofus Ashton Kutcher properly portraying Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, apparently you weren't alone: The indie film came in seventh on opening weekend.
So how about those Apple fiscal third-quarter earnings? Seems like everyone has an opinion about them, although for a three-month period that saw zero new products released, we'd certainly like to be raking it in Cupertino style. The good news for sad investors is that they won't have to wait long for the upswing, given how many times Apple executives have teased big things on the horizon for later this year -- including one such tease in today's recap.
The first full-length trailer for Ashton Kutcher's full-length biopic of Steve Jobs hit YouTube today, revealing key moments from Jobs' early life that even the most casual Apple fan may be familiar with. That, and it serves as a reminder that the entire movie seems based around the idea that bearded Kutcher is a dead ringer for young Jobs.
In Hollywood, the month of August is typically reserved as a dumping ground for movies that probably never had a chance in the first place -- which seems to be the case with Ashton Kutcher's star turn as Steve Jobs.
With only four weeks left before the poorly-titled jOBS unauthorized biopic was set to land in theaters, the distributor has now delayed the Ashton Kutcher vehicle. But it's not all bad -- they're ditching that title and ramping up their promotional efforts, but you'll have to read on to find out more.
By all accounts, Ashton Kutcher did a fine job portraying late Apple CEO Steve Jobs in the new feature film jOBS, which had its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on Friday. The reviews are mixed -- with even Apple co-founder Steve "Woz" Wozniak claiming the movie leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to accuracy -- but Kutcher appears to be coming out mostly unscathed. Will you be catching the movie when it heads to theaters?
Recently, we reported that one (of two) Steve Jobs biopics in the works would premiere during the Sundance Film Festival. Well, it looks like we'll all have a chance to see how well Ashton Kutcher portrays the late Apple CEO when JOBS hits theaters on April 19.
We're just a little over a week away from the 2013 edition of the Macworld/iWorld show in San Francisco, and the expo is locking up the high-profile guests who will appear. That includes the two stars of the upcoming independent Steve Jobs biopic -- one of whom is the artist formerly known as Mr. Demi Moore. Find out when it all goes down in our weekend recap...
