“Boscutti’s Steve Jobs” Scene 93

An ongoing daily series of scenes for a Steve Jobs biopic.

It’s a narrative experiment. It’s not going to follow a neat dramatic arc. It’s going to be a little episodic and random. Much like the subject matter.

“BOSCUTTI’S STEVE JOBS” SCENE 93

 

1980 – BYTE MAGAZINE – DAY

It’s a full page advertisement from Computer Components, 5848 Sepulveda Boulevard, Van Nuys, California 91411.

A third of the way down the advertisement are two pictures. On the left a cathode ray computer terminal screen. On the right a computer workstation with printer.

Above that a boxy 1970s cartridge disk drive. The headline proclaims ’10 Megabyte Hard Disk $3,495*. The copy underneath lists the features.
