This one is great! Pretty cool to see my own company on there (eBay, episode 3 "Bubble") even though all the footage is like 12yrs old now, hah.

Hmm.. saw the first episode of "Download" but so far I find it to be a bit too over dramatized. While not factually incorrect they paint a more negative picture than necessary at times.

For example, they paint Bill Gates as being hard on his employees. But most people know that he actually gave stock options much more freely than others of the time. And was far nicer than people like Steve Jobs. The problem with a lot of these movies is they always want a villian and a good guy.. when the reality is that there was a strong competition between companies and yes.. sometimes they did bad things.. but they weren't entirely bad people either.
