At the 1999 Macworld conference, shortly after the premiere of this TV movie, the introductory comments were made not by Steve Jobs, but by Noah Wyle, reprising his role in this movie. The real Jobs emerged shortly after and traded jokes with Wyle.

Noah Wyle was considered to play the role of Steve Jobs again in Steve Jobs (2015).

Writer and producer Michael Piller was so impressed by Anthony Michael Hall's performance as Bill Gates that he chose him to play the lead role of Johnny Smith in the television adaptation of the Stephen King novel The Dead Zone.
