Steve Jobs: One Last Thing (2011) is a documentary directed by Sarah Hunt and Mimi O’Connor about Apple co-founder Steve Jobs that covers his work with Steve Wozniak, another co-founder and the inventor of the Apple I and Apple II computers; his work with Dean Hovey on the design of the one button mouse; his influence on the design of computer fonts; his envisioning of the iPad; his founding of NeXT with funding from Ross Perot; his buying of Pixar; and his remaking of Apple with the iMac, the iPodiTunes and the iPhone.

Life Lesson:

You don’t have to be just a consumer, you can be a creator.

Movie Scene:

Steve Jobs: “When you grow up, you tend to get told that the world is the way it is, and your —  your life is just to live your life inside the world: try not to bash into the walls too much, try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money. That’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact, and that is: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you, and you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use. Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.”
