You can’t call yourself an Apple and Steve Jobs fan without knowing of Robert X. Cringely’s famous interview, which was part of Triumph of the Nerds, a documentary released in 1996. But this was only a tiny portion of the meeting Cringely had with Jobs and sadly, the original footage somehow disappeared--until, by some odd coincidence, a VHS copy of the entire interview was discovered in the director’s garage the week of Jobs’s passing. Trying to improve its quality for a theatrical release was no easy task.
With not one but two feature films now in development on the life of Steve Jobs, interest in the Apple co-founder continues unabated since his death last fall. If you'd rather watch the man himself speak, prepare to spend $3.99 on iTunes.
