BBC: Steve Jobs – Billion Dollar Hippy

After his death from cancer in October, the BBC Two started crafting a nearly one-hour documentary examining how Jobs propelled the company from his parents’ garage to global supremacy. While key figures in both Jobs’s personal and professional life didn’t participate, the BBC did get cooperation from folks who knew him as a Merry Pranksters-like individual circa the Ken Kesey era. One of those who were happy to talk was Steve Wozniak, the computer wizard who founded Apple with Jobs in 1976, and left full-time employment there in the mid 1980s. In speaking about their connection, Wozniak commented, “Steve and I, we were like a Lennon-McCartney partnership.”
