The video below is raw interview footage, which is interesting in its own right -- you'll see Jobs do multiple takes of answers and the staff deal with broken lighting -- and it gives a truly unedited look at the Apple boss.</p> Computer Hardware Networking Apple Steve Jobs Internet Desktop Macs Technology Business Fri, 24 Jan 2014 21:43:16 +0000 InfoTube 234988 at http://www.infoworld.com The Steve Jobs story you should see isn't told in 'Jobs' http://www.infoworld.com/t/technology-business/the-steve-jobs-story-you-should-see-isnt-told-in-jobs-225101?source=rss_steve_jobs <div id="tw-edit" style="padding: 8px; background: none no-repeat scroll center top #ffffff; position: relative; float: right; width: 192px; height: 288px;"><img src="http://www.infoworld.com/sites/infoworld.com/files/media/image/jobs-movie-poster.jpg" alt="'Jobs' movie poster" width="192" height="288" /></div><p>The "Jobs" movie starring Ashton Kutcher that debuted Friday is not as bad as many reviewers say it is.</p> Computer Hardware The Industry Standard Apple Steve Jobs Desktop Macs Technology Business Mon, 19 Aug 2013 10:00:00 +0000 InfoWorld Tech Watch 225101 at http://www.infoworld.com Radical ideas for new Macs from before Steve Jobs returned to Apple http://www.infoworld.com/t/desktop-macs/radical-ideas-new-macs-steve-jobs-returned-apple-225103?source=rss_steve_jobs <p>If you have watched the movie "Jobs," you know that design was a big deal to Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, and the return of design to Apple through the collaboration of Jobs and Jonathan Ive is the achievement that caps the movie (though it's not <a href="http://www.infoworld.com/t/technology-business/the-steve-jobs-story-you-should-see-isnt-told-in-jobs-225101" target="_blank">the story that "Jobs" should have focused on</a>).
