First clip from Steve Jobs biopic jOBS has Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak crying foul

The upcoming Steve Jobs biopic jOBS has had only one public screening so far, as the closing-night selection at last month's 2013 Sundance Film Festival. A single clip from the movie — which features Ashton Kutcher as Jobs and Josh Gad as Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple — recently hit the Web and immediately stirred controversy. In the scene, Wozniak tells Jobs that he's just created the first computer operating system. The real-life Wozniak responded this way in an email to leading tech site Gizmodo: "Totally wrong....our relationship was so different than what was portrayed. I'm embarrassed, but if the movie is fun and entertaining, all the better."

jOBS is scheduled to open nationwide on April 19. Here's the offending clip:
