The first trailer for the upcoming feature film Jobs, starring Ashton Kutcher, was released yesterday. Jobs chronicles the life of the late Apple co-founder, Steve Jobs. If you've seen Pirates of Silicon Valley, then this will add a fresher up-to-date take on the visionary's life, which was oftentimes a turbulent journey, leading to the iconic success we know him to be. From his days tinkering with computers with Steve Wozniak in his parents garage, to the rise of Apple and his subsequent oust from the company, to his triumphant return to Apple, it seems to all be here. In the trailer, you'll quickly see some of Steve's famous obsession with perfection. Jobs is set to be released August 16th. Until then, catch the trailer after the jump.

The most significant innovation in personal computing over the last 30 years has been the evolution of natural interfaces, with the GUI, speech recognition, gestures and touch receiving equal weight, according to Bill Gates, a co-founder and the former chief executive of Microsoft.

While Apple's Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak arguably invented and popularized the personal computer, Bill Gates, Paul Allen and later Steve Ballmer at Microsoft crafted and shaped the Windows operating system which became synonomous with the term "PC". The Apple Macintosh and Windows pushed the graphical user interface into the mainstream, driven by the increasing performance of microprocessors from Intel Corp., and later from chips designed by Advanced Micro Devices, Cyrix, Via Technology, and others.
We admit that we occasionally watch reality shows, especially when we hear that Apple’s co-founder is appearing on one. Steve Wozniak first appeared on a Segway to meet his partner Karina Smirnoff for his stint on “Dancing With the Stars.” We guess that was so he could convince her that he had some physical ability. We really like that he tried to turn his performance into something mathmatecal during rehearsal. The two performed a cha cha to the tune “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet” and unfortunately got the lowest score of the evening, a 13 out of 30.
