Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine hits theaters, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, and on demand systems today, and it's already provoking a wide range of reviews and discussion. In March, our own Bryan Bishop called it an "unflinching look at the emotional shrapnel people took when they were part of Jobs’ life," and that focus sets it apart from the growing body of work that celebrates Jobs' accomplishments in business and technology while glossing over the depth of his character.

I spoke with Gibney earlier this week about the movie, what he'd learned while making it, and the future of Apple.

I've seen it. "Steve Jobs: The Man In The Machine" is amazing. What a beautiful testament to a brilliant, but flawed man. This documentary is anything but anti-Apple (as some claim). By painting this complete a picture of Jobs, it's as pro-Apple as it could possibly get - and it's glorious for it. When it hits upon Apple's best days - the original iMac, iBook, PowerMac G4, the Cube, the iMac G4 - I nearly lost it. That is the Apple I still love.

I've never felt I understood him and Apple as much as I do now.

"Dennis Ritchie, creator of C, is by far less recognized than Steve Jobs, though his work is not only running the software/hardware of a company, but of almost all the core software in the world. "

And he should be shot for releasing that crap on the world.

Why do you call "crap" to C?

Could you please elaborate technically your assert instead of emitting adjectives?

C syntactically is crap! It promotes bugs. Pointers, switch, if {}, to name only a few, all promote the inadvertent insertion of erroneous code.

Almost as much time is spent finding/fixing language facilitated bugs as spent finding logic bugs.

It is truly a nightmare that we are still using it as much as we are and that we we have descendant languages that propogate the same crap.
