Another Steve Jobs biography movie is coming this year (2015). It's hard to believe that this movie is already happening after how long it bounced around without finding a star or a director. The good news is that it ended up with Michael Fassbender and Danny Boyle of course.
A first look at what they're making came out on Sunday, and it's a great start. Tech fans may take issue with some of the details, but it seems to be nailing the tone. It' will be on theaters by October,9th the same time as Apple will announce the new iPhone 6s. Enjoy the first Exclusive Trailer below!
Exactly 8 years ago on January 10th, 2007... Apple's CEO Steve Jobs took the stage before the public at the Macworld Conference & Expo in Moscone West in San Francisco, California and unvield the first-generation iPhone.
After quickly walking through Apple's position on the market and updating the attendees about everything Cupertino-related, Jobs transfixingly said his signature "one more thing" mantra and teased the public that he'll be treating them to not one, but three new devices a "widescreen iPod with touch controls", a "revolutionary mobile phone", and a "breakthrough Internet communicator".
Of course, this was one device. The one and only Apple iPhone. It was not flawless, but it surely set in motion the wheels of the smartphone industry and led to its nowadays' state.
Steve Jobs used to make a last second product announcement during Apple media events by uttering three words that became associated with him. "One more thing" Jobs would say, in a manner that immediately recalled Peter Falk's portrayal of television detective Columbo. Last week, it was discovered that watchmaker Swatch had trademarked the line in May, one month after the introduction of the Apple Watch.
One of the reasons that Apple's timepiece isn't called the iWatch has to do with a threat made by Swatch, which owns the iSwatch trademark. Swatch said that consumers could easily confuse the iWatch and iSwatch names, and promised to take legal action against Apple if necessary.
Today, Swatch announced that a sequel to the Touch Zero One, the Touch Zero Two, will be launched at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. The watchmaker will also offer new smartwatches later this year with support for NFC. This could allow the device to be used to make mobile payments and might be perceived as more of a challenge to the Apple Watch.
