Trusted Surveillance vs 'Enemy of The State'

Despite Flaws, Ashton As Jobs Is Worth Seeing | TechCrunch

Great for a TV movie, $20 plus popcorn night out with the girlfriend.... Nope.
TechCrunch: "If the Jobs filmmakers set out to make something entertaining, they also did a spectacular job. Jobs is inspiring and shows how difficult and isolating it can be to start a company — the long hours, the rejection, occasional wins, loss of personal relationships and the ‘overnight success’ after struggling for years. I think it should, and will be, embraced by the startup and tech communities."
