The tragic news of Steve Jobs’ death arrived late last night. This is a true loss to not just the computing world, but the modern technological world as a whole. I can’t look around my house without seeing something Steve Jobs was at least partly responsible for. My phone, my computer, my music player, pretty much every aspect of media and entertainment in my life was somehow touched by the man. There is no doubt in my mind that a Steve Jobs biopic is coming soon, and that’s where I come in.
