Isn't regulation a pain in the arse? Airbnb sure seems to think so.

After a solid week of coming to terms with the fact that Steve Jobs is Batman, we've found ourselves in a Job-less world once more. Now that Christian Bale's thrown in the tiny circular glasses, we ask you, dear readers, who's your Jobsian ideal?
It's a little-known fact that celebrity Ashton Kutcher moonlights as a Lenovo engineer. At first, it was tolerable: a kickstand here, a bigger battery there. But now, the chisel-cheeked entrepreneur has twisted Lenovo's latest tablets to his own foul aims: the new Yoga Tablet 2 Pro has a built-in projector. And a subwoofer. And a 13-inch, 2560 x 1440 screen. It's a goddamn miniature movie theatre, complete with a tiny Ashton to show you around the place.
We dished our fair share of smack talk towards Ashton Kutcher when he was tabbed to play Steve Jobs in the movie Jobs not because he couldn't make himself look like Steve Jobs but because we were afraid he would put too much Dude Where's My Car into Steve. We still don't know if he'll be able to pull Steve off but it seems the forever pretty boy actor at least tried.
Here's one of those things you'd always think was a joke but turned out to be real — the filmmakers behind Ashton Kutcher Steve Jobs movie have made an Instagram trailer. Open Roads Studios claims it's the first Instagram trailer, made from 15 seconds' worth of the official preview we saw a few weeks back.
Ashton Kutcher, method actor, truly goes the distance to capture the essence of a character. In the case of portraying Steve Jobs for the upcoming indie flick jOBS, Kutcher put himself on a diet of strictly fruits, nuts and seeds, mimicking Jobs's 'fruitarian' lifestyle.
jOBS is the true-yet-probably-somewhat-exaggerated story of a young Steve Jobs, the now legendary co-founder and CEO of Apple Computer. The film was directed by Joshua Michael Stern (Swing Vote, 2008) and written by a very young screenwriter by the name of Matt Whiteley. I was very intrigued for a number of reasons… the first being that there already had been an indie film back in 1999, Pirates of Silicon Valley, starring Noah Wyle (who uncannily looks just like Steve Jobs).
The night before I'm supposed to pose as an extra in Jobs, the first biopic to begin filming in the wake of Apple icon Steve Jobs' untimely 2011 death, I stay out until two in the morning. When I order a big bottle of Spanish cider at 1.15, five hours before my alarm is set to go off, and five hours and 45 minutes before I'm supposed to be on set, I justify it by remembering how Jobs spoke often and openly about his "important" experiences with recreational drugs. "Steve would have wanted it this way," I think, pouring myself another glass of the cloudy cider and starting in on another story.

Since Steve Jobs's death, there's been some speculation as to who might play him in the inevitable string of biopics. Here's the first: according to Variety, Ashton Kutcher is set to play the role of Jobs in a new indie movie.
