After its opening weekend, the movie only generated $6.7 million

The death of former Apple CEO Steve Jobs was a huge event in tech history two years ago, but the recent film to commemorate his career seems to be failing in the box office.

Even the Woz didn't like it. 

"I saw 'Jobs' tonight," said Steve Wozniak, who co-founded Apple with Jobs. "I thought the acting throughout was good. I was attentive and entertained but not greatly enough to recommend the movie.

"One friend who is in the movie said he didn't want to watch fiction so he wasn't interested in seeing it."

The film, simply titled "Jobs," was released in theaters last Friday. After its opening weekend, the movie only generated $6.7 million -- putting it in seventh place among new film popularity in regards to box office sales.

"Jobs" was directed by Joshua Michael Stern and starred Ashton Kutcher as Jobs.

"Lee Daniels’ The Butler" took the No. 1 spot in the North American box office, collecting $25 million. "We're the Millers" came in second place with $17.8 million and "Kick-Ass 2" took third place at $13.56 million. 

Jobs died from complications with pancreatic cancer on October 5, 2011.

I am sick of extremely opinionated types running down people, products and companies they could not begin to hold a candle to.

Apple is not perfect and neither are their products. Your suggestion that those who buy them are credulous and gullible is very offensive. I build and sell Windows PCs, tablets and other tech products. I own Apple, Android & Windows tablets. I know a thing or two about the business. Apple makes very finely crafted phones and tablets. Second to none in build quality, actually. Some of us appreciate that sort of thing.

Try to remember that your opinions aren't facts and perhaps rein in the rather vicious commentary a bit.

Oh, go Google "Samsung Corruption" if you really want to see the kind of evil that goes on.
