I very much doubt Steve Jobs would have approved of a movie about his life, beyond what's been produced already, but in this case it doesn't really matter anymore, does it?
Why does the iPhone have a 3.5-inch screen? Why do larger smartphones feel awkward on your hand? Dustin Curtis has an answer, and I think it is spot on:
