An early pre-release clip has been released of the forthcoming Steve Jobs movie, prompting Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak to comment on its inaccuracy.

His comments on the clip, which sees Jobs trying to convince Wozniak to consider creating his ideas as sellable products, mostly focussed on how the portrayal of Jobs as a great visionary simply do not reflect how he was at that time.

“As far as the personalities were in that scene, this was just ridiculous,” Wozniak told ABC News in a phone interview.

“Steve Jobs as some sort of overseeing… ‘oh my gosh, I’m the father of society, I’ve got the ideas that are gonna drive the…’ no, he wasn’t like that at all.”

When asked what he thought Jobs would have thought of the movie, Wozniak replied: “I think he would have been a little offended and embarrassed by it, like myself. I think Steve would say it was, you know, a little bit too phony.”

The publicist for the movie responded by saying that it was not a word-for-word documentary but a feature film.
