Apple and Microsoft are household names around the world. Known as tech giants today, how did they get their start? Pirates of Silicon Valley gives us a peek at the beginning of Apple and Microsoft and a look at the founders of each company. I think the movies gives us insight into the corporate cultures of each organization and maybe a better understanding of why the organizations are where they are.
Also, you learn the history of the GUI (Graphical User Interface) for Windows and Apple.
“The true story of how Bill Gates and Steve Jobs changed the world.”
"The revolution came when we weren't looking. It happened in a garage. In a dorm room. In countless hours of effort, imagining and intrigue. Apple co-founder Steve Jobs and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates were changing the way the world works, lives and communicates. The event-packed saga of the quirky visionaries who jump-started the future unfolds with exhilarating, cutting-edge style in Pirates of Silicon Valley. Noah Wyle (ER) portrays Jobs and Anthony Michael Hall (The Dead Zone) portrays Gates in this chronicle of the fierce and often humorous battle to rule the fledgling personal computer empire. "The story is almost Shakespearean... it's a tale of lust, greed, ambition, love and hate," writer/director Martyn Burke reflects. And it's a success story unlike any other." From the Movie cover
