Steve Jobs biopic to premiere in January, first official photo of Ashton Kutcher as Jobs revealed

jOBS will make its debut at the Sundance Film Festival on 27 January

jOBS, the Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher, will make its debut in January at the Sundance Film Festival as the event's closing film, it has been revealed.

Sundance.org announced 2013's Sundance Film Festival lineup on Monday, noting that jOBS, which will depict Apple's late co-founder's life from 1971 to 2000, will be the 'Closing Night Film' on 27 January.

"jOBS is a candid, inspiring and personal portrait of the one who saw things differently," Sundance describes.

Not only did Sundance announce the first showing of jOBS, it also released the first official image of Two And A Half Men star Ashton Kutcher in the role of Steve Jobs The image has been based on a photograph of Jobs himself. We're quite impressed with the resemblance between the two.

Also starring in the movie are Josh Gad as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Matthew Modine, who plays ex-Apple CEO John Scully, Giles Matthey as Jony Ive and Ahna O'Reilly, who plays Jobs' ex-girlfriend Chris-Ann Brennan.

The jOBS film should not be confused with Sony Picture's movie adaptation of Walter Isaacson's Steve Jobs biography, which screenwriter Aaron Sorkin recently revealed will have a three-scene structure set backstage at keynotes.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
