Apple inventor and cofounder Steve Wozniak is way, way nicer than this namesake in the new “Steve Jobs” movie opening in US theatres this month. I know this because I spent hundreds of hours with Wozniak in the course of researching and writing his memoir, iWoz: How I Invented the Personal Computer and Had Fun Doing It (WW Norton) back in 2005 and 2006. Far from the argumentative, cussing Wozniak that Seth Rogen portrays in the new movie, the real Wozniak is breezy and easy to get along with, almost to a fault.
William Shatner will boldly go where no man has gone before at the first-ever Silicon Valley Comic Con.

You've now had a chance to watch the rough cut of the film. What were your impressions of it?
I've actually seen two rough cuts. My impression was I was shocked and amazed at how good it was in the sense of professional filmmaking.
I usually go to a movie not looking for "do I like the story" as much as: "What is the quality that came out of the heads of the people that made it?"
In this case the filmmakers have done an award-winning job. The acting was just so realistic.
Great work in the movie. It was a really innervating experience. I’m curious if there was something about Steve Wozniak that, when you met him, you really wanted to carry across in your performance.

That never happened, he said.
Joanne Gray: So, you always wanted to have your own computer. Steve Wozniak: Oh my gosh, you could have never even dreamed of having your own computer. Chips cost so much. Parts cost so much. But in high school I got very good at designing computers and my skills got better.
