Doco trailer: The lost Jobs interview

Footage from a 1995 Steve Jobs interview has been rediscovered and now packaged into a documentary. The trailer:

Jobs' judgment on Microsoft is swift, cutting and funny, while the last line reveals a political philosophy — by making good products cheaply, you can make the world a better place — which suggests Jobs had little patience for politics or perhaps even society. There's just the device and the user.  

Much more on Jobs' aesthetics and politics here in Evgeny Morozov's brilliant review of Walter Isaacson's recent Jobs biography.
