Steve Jobs was a genius, but he wasn't always a very nice guy. People are going to remember him for both qualities, his fellow Apple co-founder said.

"I think history's going to remember him as one of those great technical leaders of all time, just like Edison," Steve Wozniak, the technical brains behind the founding of Apple, said in a short video clip released by Universal Pictures on Thursday. The studio created the new "Steve Jobs" movie. "He might also be remembered for his negative personality. I think that's going to go with his legacy forever, but he led the world in the future and everyone else then would follow once they saw it."

"Steve Jobs" is a cinematic portrait of the man who, with Macs, iPhones and iPads, was instrumental in bringing computers to everyday people. The movie opened in New York and Los Angeles last week and will hit theaters globally in the coming weeks. Aaron Sorkin of TV's "The West Wing" and feature film "The Social Network" penned the screenplay, while Danny Boyle of "Slumdog Millionaire" directed.
