The story of Steve Wozniak and his rise from startup founder to one of the most successful and influential men in the history of the world is one of innovation and innovation’s greatest accomplishments.
But, the story also has a dark side.
Steve Jobs is known as a legend.
His work on the Apple II was the catalyst for the personal computer revolution, his creation of the Macintosh and the iPhone was responsible for transforming the way we communicate, and his death was the spark that ignited the next revolution in the world of computing, the Internet and the development of social media.
But the story of Jobs’ life has been overshadowed by the scandal surrounding his death, and that’s partly because of the way his story has been portrayed.
In a new documentary called Steve Jobs, the filmmaker reveals how he was kept in the dark by his superiors about the death of his best friend, the brilliant, outspoken programmer who had become one of Apple’s biggest supporters and an influential figure in the company.
The documentary has been produced by former CNN host Erin Burnett and producer David Ebersol.
It’s part of a wider documentary series about Jobs and Apple called Steve Waz.
“It’s one of those things that I never wanted to do, but I had to because it’s important,” said Burnett.
“He was my friend, he was my hero, he’s the reason I got into computer programming and I’ve always been interested in computers and technology.
And when we went into Apple in 1993, I thought I was going to be the first person in the US to go into a company and see what it was about and then see the people there and what they were doing, but when I started there, I saw a whole different world.
I just saw a lot of stuff that I didn’t understand.”
Burnett was also involved in the making of a documentary about Jobs called The Last Days of Steve.
She had been a regular visitor at the company’s campus in Cupertino, California, where she worked for about six months on the project.
“I was very, very naive,” she told Al Jazeera.
The film chronicled the history and life of the Apple I and II computers, which launched in 1993.
After a long day of filming in the summer of 1994, Burnett said she was approached by a colleague who wanted to see the finished product.
She was not sure what to expect, but she was told the director wanted to meet her.
Burnett recalled that she went to the meeting at Apple headquarters, but it was to talk about her film, and not about the documentary.
Burnett said she didn’t feel at all intimidated.
“I didn’t think they were going to fire me,” she said.
“They didn’t say, ‘We have a problem with your documentary, you’re fired’.
They just said, ‘This is the way things are going to work.'”
Burnett remembers meeting Steve at the Apple campus, where he was waiting for a tour of the computer plant.
He told her the story about the day that Jobs died and that she should be very proud of herself for being part of his creation, but he also said that he did not believe she was going out of her way to tell the story.
Burnette was told to leave the meeting, and soon afterward she was asked to come back to work.
She said she had no idea how long she would work on it.
“That’s what I’m proudest of in this whole thing is the fact that I did everything right,” she recalled.
Burnet recalled that the film focused on the company and Jobs, who was working on the computer at the time, but the film did not focus on Apple itself.
A week after the meeting with her co-producer, Burnett had the idea to ask the film’s director if she would be interested in making the film.
Burnsett said that she agreed, and the director and producer approached her in the middle of the night and asked her to be part of the film, which they would then release on YouTube.
Burning said she thought about it for a few days before deciding to make the film herself.
She told Al Jazeer in an interview that she didn and decided to keep it quiet because she was afraid it would be damaging to the company if she spoke out.
“It was something I was very proud to do because I’m very loyal to my friends,” she added.
Despite her initial reservations about doing the film with a camera crew, Burnett told Al JAZEER that she and the other members of the team were confident that they would make a documentary that would be interesting to people.
Burnetts involvement with the project is a key part of what makes it so compelling.
The documentary was edited and edited and it’s the kind of thing that is difficult to watch and understand because you are really just watching
