t’s been well known in the tech world and entertainment industry alike that Ashton Kutcher had been filming for the movie, ‘jOBS,’ for quite some time now. Today, Entertainment Weekly unveiled the first clip of the highly anticipated movie that will be premiering this Friday at the Sundance Film Festival. The part of Steve is probably the most talked about role in the movie but without Steve Wozniak (played by Josh Gad), Apple would have never come about. Take a peek below of the exclusive first clip of 'jObs.'

In the clip, we can see Jobs trying to convince Wozniak that together they could create and sell an amazing device, now known as the Macintosh, to the world. Gad noted in the interview with EW that he had to read iWoz, Walter Isaacson’s book, Steve Jobs, and watch hundreds of hours of footage in preparation for the role. The film hits theaters April 19.

Steve Jobs Resigns As Apple's CEO

And just like that, Steve Jobs resigns as CEO of Apple. Tim Cook, who has been with Apple for more than 13 years, has been appointed CEO of Apple. Steve Jobs will still be involved at Apple as the chairman of the board. Official press release has been announced by Apple today.

Here's Steve Jobs' official letter of resignation to the Apple Board of Directors:

To the Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community:

I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.

I hereby resign as CEO of Apple. I would like to serve, if the Board sees fit, as Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee.

As far as my successor goes, I strongly recommend that we execute our succession plan and name Tim Cook as CEO of Apple.

I believe Apple’s brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it. And I look forward to watching and contributing to its success in a new role.

I have made some of the best friends of my life at Apple, and I thank you all for the many years of being able to work alongside you.

Steve
