Mix one part college dropout, two parts entrepreneurial spirit, three parts vision . . . and you've got a one-of-a-kind Steve Jobs. The movie starring Ashton Kutcher as the Apple visionary, Jobs, hits theaters Aug. 16. Apple's iconic founder was a highly influential and — for the relentless work ethic he expected of himself and his employees — controversial figure in the tech industry, which is why his story makes for such compelling film fodder.
