Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview made it to cinemas last year, but it has only now made it to the US iTunes store, available exclusively as a rental for $3.99.
The 70 minute interview, conducted by Robert Cringley for his 1996 documentary “Triumph of the Nerds: The Rise of Accidental Empires”, gives a revealing insight into Steve’s personality despite only 10 minutes of the interview being featured in the former (the rest was obtained from director Paul Sen, who recorded the entire discussion, this was what was made into the film).
“My little film about Steve Jobs has finally made it to iTunes (YouTube as well!) as a $3.99 rental, but you wouldn’t know it,” wrote Cringely on his blog site. “Deeming the film ‘too controversial,’ Apple has it on the site but they aren’t promoting it and won’t. The topic is ‘too sensitive,’ you see. It isn’t even listed in the iTunes new releases. You have to search for it. But it’s there.”
It’s worth a watch, especially as it’s only $3.99 (link). The trailer (viewable below) is certainly enticing, and it’s more than just Steve talking about Apple, he discusses many other important things including design and competitors at the time.
