Seems like this is a very objective view on the life of a very complex visionary.

Very inspiring and relevant to anyone who wants to make a difference. Interesting points illustrated included how he learned from his mistakes in the business world, but perhaps not in personal relationships. While I would love to find super success, I won't step on people, use them, nor throw them away. Jobs changed lives to be sure, and this video illustrates that and leaves me with the notion of changing lives without losing relationships. It also illustrates that visionaries are often born, not created. Jobs was a born visionary. Thank you Mr. Jobs.

Simple interviews of his life, friends and business ties. Seeing peoples views of him (good and bad) was insightful in and of itself. But, I found it very interesting when learning of a belief system Jobs had that I never thought of in such good words. Something he considered some decades before he died. Watch it, and learn something about how to live and work with your life, and wonder (as I am) of what people will say about you after you died what they may point out of what you left behind.

Steve Jobs: One Last Thing is a good film, but unfortunately, there are so many others like it that tell the same story. It's just a shortened version of existing, longer films about the history of Steve Jobs. The subtitle "One Last Thing" seemed to suggest that the film might actually have more detail or insight about Jobs or his inventions than other films might. I looked forward to learning more about his journey in Buddhism or his supposed future plans for developing technologies that will impact the television industry. Either of those would have been fitting as "one last thing," but this film instead is sadly just a rehash of old information.

What the film does have is good narration and sequencing. It is easy to follow along with and explains the Jobs story visually with appropriate detail. Its use of first-person interviews with some of Jobs's old acquaintances is one of the few highlights. The film could have been much improved had the interviews been allowed to take a more prominent role. I would have liked to have heard more from the Buddhist colleague or perhaps even Jobs's wife, who did not actually appear in the film.

Despite the many ways the film could be improved, it is still worth watching if you are a staunch Steve Jobs or Apple product fan. If you are looking for something more substantive, consider reading one of the Steve Jobs biographies instead.

This show is mostly regurgitated video from other show, hardly any new (or insightful) information included. I was very disappointed that it was advertised to be something that it isn't, fresh with additional content.

Still a good video, but not "insanely great".

No matter if you are a "PC" or an "Apple" guy, it's definitely a must see. There's an important mosaic piece to be seen, to think about. Did Jobs burn his candle till he developed his illness or is it just a coincidence? How life should be savored? Some questions that came to me while seeing this piece of art.

Steve Jobs was without a doubt a genius. Unfortunately, like most, I never had the opportunity to meet Steve, personally, but I do feel a very, very close connection to him - not only from the products I use everyday [compliments of his genius], - but also from many of his personal philosophies, that I relate to in my own life.

I feel both honored and privileged to have lived during his lifetime, and I enjoyed this short film very much. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in gaining insight into his incredible life.

Why is that we wait until someone is gone before we really get to know them? I think SJ will go down as one of the mis-understood geniuses of his time.

Great insight into a great visionary. You have to appreciate his ability to see things in a product that did not yet exist. You will enjoy seeing his focus and clarity on what he wanted Apple to become.
