I cannot just yet see how ...
Clooney even looks like jobs.
Is it the turtlenecks?
Hollywood heartthrob George Clooney has been named as a lead contender for the role of Steve Jobs in the inevitable cash-in movie, planned to start filming next year. Although Jobs is barely cool inside his tastefully-designed final resting place, the race is on to find someone to sum up the hippy-turned-ruthless-tycoon. …
It surprised me that Jobs had not arranged for some cryogenic entombment system, he just seemed like the kind of person that would do that, maybe in anticipation of being re-animated centuries hence and playing himself in the first of many biopics to come. Then settling down, maybe re-branding, ready to release the next series of must-have gadgetry. Whatever is said about him and his product, he seems to have had a large amount of energy, drive and ambition and enough money for the cryogenics.
Whatever - RIP Steve - he started out in interesting times and I am still more than happy with my modest collection of early hardware, which still works fine and, imho, is far more worthy than more recent gadgetry from Apple.
He had vision, even if some didn't much care for the final horizons he settled on.
Clooney isn't an actor. He plays one person and one person only - George Clooney. He utterly ruined Batman by ... being George Clooney. (Amongst other films).
The *only* person who can pull off being themselves in any role is Sean Connery. Thinking about it, why not cast him as Jobs and have done with it.
Why even waste OUR time looking at this. What a testament to the FAIL of 21st century civilization if this is what is celebrated or honored? A man that enslaved millions into DRM infected CRAP.
Get your priorities straight people.
For Paris, of course my video will get more views and downloads than any 'n00b' apple guy.

I know Jobs got all the hipsters and creatives wet in their pants and there is no doubt Jobs was a smart man, but does he really deserve all this adoration and worship? There are people who are far more important in IT who seem to get no credit at all.
Dennis Ritchie (to name but one). Let's see the movie about his life first. Without Ritchie there would have been no Apple! At least, now Apple in the form people drool over today.
Cue the downvotes from the Jobsian collective.
