How do you feel about steve wozniak declaring some scenes weren't accurate after he saw footage of the film?
Steve wozniak is being paid by another company to support their steve jobs film. it's personal for him, but it's also business. we have to keep that in mind. he was also extremely unavailable to us when producing this film. he's a brilliant man and I respect his work, but he wasn't available to us as a resource, so his account isn't going to be our account because we don't know exactly what it was. we did the best job we could. nobody really knows what happened in the rooms.
Why do you think now is the right time for this story? it isn't too soon?
As time passes, I think the tales get taller. he'll become more glorified for the things he did right, and more vilified for the things he did wrong. we had a great opportunity to tell a story about a guy with an exponential amount of resources to inform us about what really happened — or as close to what really happened as they can recall.
How did you mentally prepare for the scenes where jobs goes into beast mode and he's yelling and combative?
He was never just senselessly combative. I think there was something he desired, and he had a goal and passion for his consumers that were driving his frustration. he wanted the people around him to care as much about the result as he did.

You don't paint a spotless portrait of steve jobs in this film. how did you balance playing a man that's obviously an icon but also has flaws like everyone else?
I think steve cared about the end result and wasn't worried about being liked and knew he would eventually be liked if his creations were properly executed. he was very blunt, but it's because he cared. I tried to look at his faults as his gifts, ...This knowledge is worth millions but signing up is free
Are you worried at all about the ipad launch next week?
Not at all. i’m not concerned about it in the least bit. maybe it will be an iphone plus plus. I think Apple has their fingers in a lot of things. we are really focused on this space and this product. I will be really surprised if they launch anyt...This knowledge is worth millions but signing up is free
What’s coming next? there’s got to be a yoga tablet 4 pro on the way!
I’m just really excited that that people will get the yoga tablet 2 pro in their hands soon. when you launch a movie, you work on it and then that’s it. with this we get to launch it and see what people think and then make it even better. that’s r...This knowledge is worth millions but signing up is free
What do you make of the lenovo/motorola deal? are you excited about working with motorola
I’m not a c-level executive. i’m just a product engineer, so I don’t get to chime in on these things.
So that’s all in the yoga tablet 2 pro tablet, right? but there’s also a new yoga 3 pro? all these yoga names are very confusing. have you thought about fixing that?
I refer to it as the tablet with a projector. I get what you are saying, the yoga line of product is a holistic line about the flexibility of the device. think of how many macs Apple had! this is our version of the i-this and the i-that.
What are the biggest improvements here?
With the yoga tablet 2 pro we took it a step further and realized we needed to make this a great entertainment device. we wanted to build a tablet with the best sound of any tablet in the world—we fit in a subwoofer and an 8-watt speaker. no need ...This knowledge is worth millions but signing up is free
You’ve been a product engineer at lenovo for about a year now. how did you contribute to the creation of these new yoga tablets?
From the get-go, having not built anything like this before, I had a lot more questions than answers. the first thing I did was go to china to sit down with the team and brainstorm. we felt it was really important with the product to build somethi...This knowledge is worth millions but signing up is free
Your aunt might spam you with cat photos.
That's right. and that's okay.
There's chatter about Facebook hitting a plateau. is it in any danger of going the way of myspace?
I actually think Twitter has a greater danger of becoming myspace-y. myspace was this open platform, and Twitter has the same dynamic: you can have millions of people within your social network, so it goes outside your weak-tie relationships. ther...This knowledge is worth millions but signing up is free
You consult with a lot of the tech companies you invest in. if mark zuckerberg asked you for advice, what would you tell him?
I'd ask him a lot of questions rather than tell him anything. that's generally how I enter the room with all of these guys.
What do you think is coming that will blow our minds five or ten years from now?
I think the big next wave will be wearable technologies. your phone will be your true pc, and these technologies will act as your mouse and keyboard. you'll have a high-fashion bracelet that will perform functions for you—it'll track your health, ...This knowledge is worth millions but signing up is free
For a while your Twitter account was the most popular in the world, and you're still in the top 10. what's your secret?
A lot of people use social media to share mundane things or for self-glorification. I try to use it to share interesting things with people. tony hsieh, who created zappos.com, said to me, "everything I post on the web has to be icee"—it has to in...This knowledge is worth millions but signing up is free
Sounds kind of creepy. do you think privacy is overrated?
I think privacy is valuable. you don't have to share everything, and it's healthy to occasionally hit the pause button and ask yourself if you're oversharing. but at the end of the day, if you're not doing anything wrong you don't have anything to...This knowledge is worth millions but signing up is free
As a celebrity, you're used to managing the boundary between your public and private selves. is that something we all have to do now?
You have to learn to negotiate it, or you can choose not to participate. it's almost like a manifestation of god. people used to behave morally because they thought god was always watching—in some ways god today is the collective, and the collecti...This knowledge is worth millions but signing up is free
The line between online life and real life is getting blurrier. is that a good thing?
I wouldn't bifurcate the two. I wouldn't say you have an online life and a real life. I think technology is just mapping and organizing what already exists. if you're an asshole offline, you're probably an asshole online.
Most people know you as an actor. how'd you become such a tech nerd?
After punk'd, my company katalyst did a deal with aol to produce short-form content for the web. at that time it was a different game. if you got front-page coverage on any popular website, you could probably get a push. but about three years ago ...This knowledge is worth millions but signing up is free
