The much-anticipated biopic of Apple founder Steve Jobs – “jOBS” – starring Ashton Kutcher is set to make its debut tonight at the Sundance Film Festival. Today we get our first sneak peek in one minute scene of Kutcher and Josh Gads, who plays a beatnik-geek version of Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, discussing the potential for the first personal computer.
“Nobody wants to buy a computer, nobody,” Wozniak says.
“How does somebody know what they want if they have never even seen it,” Jobs says.
Wozniak’s line is akin to the sentiment expressed by IBM CEO Thomas Watson at the time who imfamously said, “I think there is a world market for maybe five computers.” History would, epically, prove Watson wrong.
See the one minute clip below. “jOBS” is set to hit theaters on April 19th.
