jobs macs 1984
Tributes to Steve Jobs have been plentiful in the weeks since his death and his authorized biography by Walter Isaacson has revealed a number of new details about his life, but a new documentary from PBS set to premiere on Wednesday, November 2nd appears to offer insights from some unique people associated with Jobs.

Featuring interviews with, among others, Ronald Wayne, co-founder of Apple with Jobs and Steve Wozniak; Ross Perot, who invested in NeXT Computer when Jobs was running out of money; Walt Mossberg, principal technology columnist for The Wall Street Journal, who interviewed Jobs every year from 2003-2010; will.i.am, frontman and producer for The Black Eyed Peas, whose “I Gotta Feeling” currently ranks as the most downloaded iTunes song ever; Dean Hovey, designer of the original mouse for Apple; Robert Cringely, writer and host of the PBS series TRIUMPH OF THE NERDS: THE RISE OF ACCIDENTAL EMPIRES; Robert Palladino, calligraphy professor at Reed College, whose classes Jobs credited with inspiring his typography design for the Mac; and Bill Fernandez, who introduced Jobs and Wozniak in Sunnyvale, where the three hung out in his father’s garage and tinkered with electronics.

The documentary will also include clips from a "never-before-broadcast" 1994 interview with Jobs in which he shares some of his thoughts on life.

The documentary examines Jobs' life from the perspective of understanding the influences that "shaped his character" and enabled him to revolutionize numerous industries. Steve Jobs - One Last Thing will premiere next Wednesday, November 2nd, at 10:00 PM on PBS stations around the United States.

For me, it is 10pm PDT on KQED-9 in the SF Bay Area. Your mileage may vary.

Was thinking the same thing. I totally get and am looking forward to hear from all these other folks regarding their knowledge of and relationship with Jobs, but why throw in this guy?

Any doco, especially one that features original content, is welcome.

I only wish that some of the audio recordings Isaacson made for research of his bio were done with video. Would have loved to see the expression of the private Steve Jobs as he was talking about the many things he was so passionate about & interested in (as per the '60 Minutes' story the other day).

But I guess he would've been aware of the camera and perhaps played it down.
