Mere hours after the passing of Apple co-creator Steve Jobs, Deadline.com asked, “Will Hollywood Book Biopic of Steve Jobs?” Too soon? Maybe. But it does seem inevitable. Long before Mark Zuckerberg was making computer geekery the stuff of an Oscar-nominated hit, Jobs and Steve Wozniack were tinkering in a garage, Tom Edison-style, back in 1976.
Of course, that gets us dreaming up who could play Jobs as he prepares to revolutionize our lives — and we love picturing the great ’70s costumes and sets this movie would require. And yeah, we’re thinking out of the box a bit with this, but come along in this imaginative exercise, and then let us know your own suggestions in the comments below!

“Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.” – Steve Jobs, Stanford University Commencement Speech, 2005
The world lost one of its most original visionaries, as Steve Jobs passed away yesterday at the age of 56. Like Edison, Gutenberg and Henry Ford all rolled into one, Jobs and his Apple Inc. gave us so many tools that we’ve almost come to take for granted in our everyday existence. The man improved our lives immeasurably and changed the way we think. His devices made the world a little smaller and a little closer. In Steve’s memory, we’d like to give a FabLife salute and take a look at some of the many gifts he gave us in his much-too-short lifetime.

It would be hard to overstate how much Apple co-founder Steve Jobs transformed our lives, from getting a mouse into our hands to introducing the touch screen, from how we listen to music to how we talk face-to-face on our mobile phones. In the end, Jobs definitely delivered on his “Think Different” advertising slogan. So it’s not surprising that celebs from every walk of life took to Twitter and Facebook like the rest of us to share their condolences upon hearing that he lost his battle to cancer at the age of 56. R.I.P. Steve.
