In honor of Steve Jobs’ keynote speech today at MacWorld 2008, let’s watch Pirates of Silicon Valley !

One of my favorite geek movies! Noah Wyle (ER) is an excellent SteveO and Anthony Michael Hall (Sixteen Candles) is a good Bill Gates.

Sure, the writers took major liberties with the truth, but it’s still great fun! Here are some resources if you need to more fact from fiction: Wikipedia.

Here’s the trailer:

Here’s a great scene from the 1999 classic where Steve Jobs confronts Bill Gates and calls him a thief for stealing their idea for windows. I love it when Steve says “Our stuff is better” and Bill Gates replies with “You don’t get it. That doesn’t matter!”

Here’s “Pirates of Silicon Valley” in its entirety plus a few special treats such as the trailer, Steve Wozniak discussing the validity of the movie and Noah Wyle impersonating Steve Jobs at the 1999 Mac World.

That was awesome! I don’t know what’s better – thinking about where the two they portrayed are today or where they actors are today. LOL
