Lost Steve Jobs interview dock on iTunes as $4 rental
Following its limited theatrical release in May, the documentary feature Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview has now been made available on iTunes for a $4 rental. The option to purchase it has not been enabled. The film focuses on Jobs talking about his life and career in 1995 and just months ahead of Apple acquiring NeXT and returning Jobs to the helm of the company.
The original hour-long interview was conducted by PBS columnist Robert X. Cringely with excerpts from the full interview used in Cringleys PBS series 'The Triumph of the Nerds'. However, the full interview was thought long lost until it showed up as a VHS copy in the director Paul Sens garage last year. According to Cringely, Jobs is at the top of his game during the interview, feeling good about what he had accomplished with NeXT and his other company Pixar had just scored a massive hit with 'Toy Story'.
It was in this interview where Jobs was famously says that "the only problem with Microsoft is that they just have no taste." It also features Jobs mulling the future of technology and his general views on business and the technology industry. It is expected that the interview will eventually be available for purchase on DVD later this summer.
