5 months ago exactly I asked you all what you guys thought of the Jobs movie that had just been released in theatres and I had the honor of Mr. +Steve Wozniak coming on to the post (original comment here https://plus.google.com/+CarmsPerez/posts/GnVTvQNgvpf)
and commenting and explaining what really went on at the time vs what the movie portrayed. I chose to not watch the movie then, however, tonight I rented it simply out of curiosity it was so good to see it knowing his perspective and the account of how things actually happened. I want to thank Mr. Wozniak from the bottom of my heart for every bit of time spent working on creating Apple computers. YOU are the true force behind this operating system which I love so much bc it makes my life so easy.  Thank you for dedicating so much of your youth to this project. Honored once more to have such unique commentary from you on my page. 
Original comment from Steve Wozniak below

Steve Wozniak Aug 19, 2013
"Actually, the movie was largely a lie about me. I was an engineer at HP designing the iPhone 5 of the time, their scientific calculators. I had many friends and a good reputation there. I designed things for people all over the country, for fun, all the time too, including the first hotel movie systems and SMPTE time code readers for the commercial video world. Also home pinball games. Among these things, the Apple I was the FIFTH time that something I had created (not built from someone else's schematic) was turned into money by Jobs. My Pong game got him his job at Atari but he never was an engineer or programmer. I was a regular member at the Homebrew Computer Club from day one and Jobs didn't know it existed. He was up in Oregon then. I'd take my designs to the meetings and demonstrate them and I had a big following. I wasn't some guy nobody talked to, although I was shy in social settings. i gave that computer design away for free to help people who were espousing the thoughts about computers changing life in so many regards (communication, education, productivity, etc.). I was inspired by Stanford intellectuals like Jim Warren talking this way at the club. Lee Felsenstein wanted computers to help in things like the antiwar marches he'd orchestrated in Oakland and I was inspired by the fact that these machines could help stop wars. Others in the club had working models of this computer before Jobs knew it existed. He came down one week and I took him to show him the club, not the reverse. He saw it as a businessman. It as I who told Jobs the good things these machines could do for humanity, not the reverse. I begged Steve that we donate the first Apple I to a woman who took computers into elementary schools but he made my buy it and donate it myself.

When I first met Jobs, I had EVERY Dylan album. I was a hardcore fan. I had bootlegs too. Jobs knew a few popular Dylan songs and related to the phrase "when you ain't got nothin' you got nothing to lose." I showed Jobs all my liner notes and lyrics and took him to record stores near San Jose State and Berkeley to buy Dylan bootlegs. I showed him brochures full of Dylan quotes and articles and photos. I brought Jobs into this Dylan world in a big way. I would go to the right post office at midnight, in Oakland, to buy tickets to a Dylan concert and would take Jobs with me. Jobs asked early on in our friendship whether Dylan or the Beatles were better. I had no Beatles album. We both concurred that Dylan was more important because he said important things and thoughtful things. So a Beatles fan was kind of a pop lamb to us. Why would they portray us in the movie as Dylan for Jobs and Beatles for me?

And when Jobs (in the movie, but really a board does this) denied stock to the early garage team (some not even shown) I'm surprised that they chose not to show me giving about $10M of my own stock to them because it was the right thing. And $10M was a lot in that time.

Also, note that the movie showed a time frame in which every computer Jobs developed was a failure. And they had millions of dollars behind them. My Apple ][ was developed on nothing and productized on very little. Yet it was the only revenue and profit source of the company for the first 10 years, well past the point that Jobs had left. The movie made it seem that board members didn't acknowledge Jobs' great work on Macintosh but when sales fall to a few hundred a month and the stock dives to 50% in a short time, someone has to save the company. The proper course was to work every angle possible, engineering and marketing, to make the Macintosh marketable while the Apple ][ still supported us for years. This work was done by Sculley and others and it involved opening the Macintosh up too.

The movie shows Steve's driving of the Macintosh team but not the stuff that most of the team said they'd never again work for him. It doesn't show his disdain and attempts to kill the Apple ][, our revenue source, so that the Macintosh wouldn't have to compete with it. The movie audience would want to see a complete picture and they can often tell when they are being shortchanged.

And ease of computer came to the world more than anything from Jef Raskin, in many ways and long before Jef told us to look into Xerox. Jef was badly portrayed.

And if you think that our investor and equal stock holder and mentor Mike Markkula was Jobs' stooge (and not in control of everything), well, you have been duped.

Jobs mannerisms and phrases are motivational and you need a driver to move things along. But it's also important to have the skills to execute and create products that will be popular enough to sell for more than it costs to make them. Jobs didn't have that success at Apple until the iPod, although OS X deserves the credit too. These sorts of things people would have wanted to see, about Jobs or about Apple, but the movie gives other images of what was behind it all and none add up." #Apple

This is as thing that I don't think people are getting. The absurdist nature of this kind of think at Davos isn't the issue... this is:

You know, even going back to the Feudal states, when the crown lost the ability to tax the nobility at meaningful levels, it was the sign of a failed Sovereign. 

We now have banks that are not just "Too Big to Fail", but "Too Big to Jail" that are getting giant pay increases as their companies pay penalties for crimes over and over...

I know it is unfashionable for a lot of techies to admit it, but we make a lot of money and I am kind of stuck here... Lacking some kind of Downton Abbey kind of aristocratic upbringing, we are doing a shitty, shitty, job at understanding we have an obligation to give back, and do so at higher levels.  The shit in San Francisco is literally a peasant uprising, and if you think you make a crap top of money because you empirically deserve it, you are just part of the problem.

About 5 years ago, I remember having a conversation with an Indian colleague. We kind of agreed that "India is going to have a revolution. Maybe it will be an FDR or maybe it will be a Mao, but we need to push toward the former." The US is back to pre-FDR inequality measures, and it might be realistic to ask that about ourselves. I am not saying that camping out on some random Googler's lawn was a great idea, but nobody was burning a cross, either. 

I am one of the "Well off", and I like it. But the new "Let them eat cake" is "They are just lazy."

Deploying 10,000 tiny antennas makes no technical sense—but the law demands it.

My thoughts on ChromeOS and the Pixel: ChromeOS, and the Pixel in particular, is so polarizing because if it is not right for you, it makes very little sense at all. Ironically, both the critics and advocates point to what is missing, describing that "lack" as either a crippling flaw or a ...
