Okay, if you’ve never seen the movie Pirates of Silicon Valley, then you’re in luck. In honor of Steve Jobs, TNT will be airing it tonight at 8:00 PM, and again at 10:00 PM.
This is a great movie that tells the story of a young Steve Jobs and Bill Gates as they battle each other to introduce the first personal computer.
I’ve always loved this movie, even though, like any “based on a true story” movie, you can only take it with a grain of salt. But, this film does a great job of telling the story of two of the greatest contributors to our digital world.
So, if you don’t have any plans tonight, then I suggest you pop some popcorn, plop yourself on the couch and tune-in to TNT at eight. You’ll thank me later for it.
