The film opens with the creation of the 1984 commercial for Apple Computer, which introduced the first Macintosh.[2] Steve Jobs (Noah Wyle) is speaking with director Ridley Scott (J. G.

As with Wozniak in the earlier segment, Ballmer narrates Gates'story, particularly the moment when Gates discovers the existence of Ed Roberts' (Gailard Sartain) MITS Altair (causing him to drop out of Harvard). Gates' and Allen's early work with MITS is juxtaposed...
