Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman of MythBusters fame will pay homage to the late Steve Jobs by hosting a special titled iGenius: How Steve Jobs Changed the World. This one-hour documentary, a Discovery and NBC Peacock Productions collaboration, will include interviews with various people whose lives were greatly impacted by Jobs.
This hour documentary talks briefly about Steve Jobs life – from his early years with Steve Wozniak, starting Apple Computers Co, to his sacking and then returning to Apple after starting NeXt and Pixar. Then came the revolutions – from the Macintosh, to the iPod, iPhone and iPad.
Some of the people interviewed in the documentary includes:
- Lee Felsenstein, a founding member of the Homebrew Computer Club
- Daniel Kottke, a friend who traveled to India with Jobs and who later become an early Apple employee
- John Draper, an engineer who worked with Jobs and Steve Wozniak
- NBC Correspondent Tom Brokaw
- Joe Nocera of the New York Times
- Theoretical physicist Dr. Michio Kaku
- Musicians Pete Wentz and Stevie Wonder
An hour is never enough to capture the work that Steve Jobs had done. But at least this gives a quick recap on his life and his work.
The documentary will air in Singapore on Discovery Channel, November 6 Sunday at 10pm.
