The first scene of Jobs is also one of the best as the Apple co-founder, played by Ashton Kutcher, introduces the iPod.
Sitting in the audience, your iPhone or iPod in your bag, the monumental impact of Steve Jobs on the world really slams into you.
However, as this biopic progresses, despite some fine performances, it begins to slowly descend, until about two thirds of the way through its various problems become too much.
The result is an interesting, yet lacklustre portrait of Jobs' rise to success.
The main issue with making a biopic like this is that even though it concentrates on a specific time period - Jobs from his hippy college days to the launch of the iPod - it feels like it only just scratches the surface.
Because while the film succeeds by showing Jobs' flaws as well as his brilliance, it skims over far too much, even with its 127 minute runtime.
You can't be sure if this was for legal reasons, or the screenwriters just not having access to information.
But for someone who hasn't read Jobs' biography, or know much about him, director Joshua Michael Stern has created an incomplete picture that leaves you with more questions than answers.
As Apple begins to take off, Jobs destroys the friendships that helped get the company started through his single-minded ambition.
While the disintegrating friendship with co-founder Steve Wozniak (portrayed brilliantly by Josh Gad) is shown, as well as the nasty side of business, Jobs' relationships with his daughter and people like Microsoft founder Bill Gates, are glossed over.
One minute Jobs is denying his daughter even exists, until suddenly we flash-forward and he's a family man, yet with no explanation for how or why.
A clear pro of the film is the casting. Across the board, performances are excellent, but particularly for Kutcher, who nails Jobs' gait, mannerisms and speech.
Unfortunately, a lot of the dialogue Kutcher is given is in the form of inspirational monologues, which tends to grate by the end.
There's no doubt Steve Jobs was a visionary and a genius who will be remembered for having revolutionised the way we use everything from music to phones.
But Jobs as a film is too long, yet breezes over far too much to have the gravitas that would do him justice.
