Kutcher talks focus, customers, and the impossible in JOBS

JOBS star Ashton Kutcher, who plays the lead role of Steve Jobs in the film, gave a talk this morning at Macworld/iWorld 2013 and discussed what it was like to play the role of the co-founder and former CEO of one of the biggest technology companies on Earth. When asked what he thought the most important things were that viewers should get out of the movie, he had a few things in mind.

JOBS may not be entirely accurate, but does it matter?

JOBS may not be entirely accurate, but does it matter?

The Steve Jobs biopic, JOBS, made its debut this past weekend at the Sundance Film Festival (with a theatrical release on April 19), and the reviews have begun pouring in. While many critics praised Kutcher and Gad for a job well done in their roles as Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, respectively, they were quick to criticize a few inaccurate details in the film. For instance, we saw the first clip from the film a few days ago, and Steve Wozniak said himself that the scene was “totally wrong,” and it’s actually not what happened at all during the early days of Apple. In the long run, though, does it really matter? In the Hollywood industry where the truth doesn’t always entirely make it through anyway, should we really be upset that a narrative non-fiction film isn’t 100% accurate?

Steve Jobs’ Venus yacht shown in fresh footage

Steve Jobs’ Venus yacht shown in fresh footage

Steve Jobs' yacht, the Starck-designed Venus, hasn't had an easy time over the holidays, impounded in Amsterdam over unpaid bills, but that gave harbor hunters a chance to snap some new video of the crisp-edged craft. Michiel Frackers took a post-Christmas walk to the former container terminal where Venus was being held, and rather fittingly used an iPhone 5 to film the distinctive yacht as it was being tended to by crew.

We can now all move on with our lives amid the freeing of the Steve Jobs-commissioned superyacht from impound as the estate and designer Philippe Starck have reached a monetary agreement. This agreement comes after the Starck group Ubik set the ship in impound because of unpaid fees from the Steve Jobs estate. The big news today has the ship set free. It's been a devastating five days that the ship has been stopped from glorious water freedom.

Steve Jobs Yacht impounded amid unpaid Starck designer fee

Steve Jobs Yacht impounded amid unpaid Starck designer fee

In just about as close a story to Celebrity News as the tech world ever gets, today's strangest bit of gadget-less drama comes from the Philippe Starck-designed superyacht now in impound over unpaid fees from the Steve Jobs estate. The "superyacht" garnered quite a bit of attention earlier this year as it was first mistaken for a laptop then marveled over once it was revealed as a massive ship custom-made for Steve Jobs himself. Today's news comes from Starck's design company Ubik where they've made it clear that they're going to get the rest of the cash their owed: apparently the Jobs estate hasn't paid up.

jOBS film to debut at Sundance Film Festival

jOBS film to debut at Sundance Film Festival

We've talked on several occasions about the Steve Jobs bio picture made independently with Ashton Kutcher playing Jobs. The movie is called jOBS and originally I thought it was a very strange choice to put Ashton Kutcher in the lead. As more photos from the set of the film surfaced, it was clear Kutcher and the 70s version of Steve Jobs look eerily similar.
