There are great TV shows about tech companies. My favorites are:
Silicon Valley, a comedy on the Valley
The Playlist, on the Spotify story
The Billion Dollar Code, on Terra Vision (Art+Com) vs Google Earth
The Dropout, about Theranos
Super Pumped, the battle for Uber
They are mostly entertainment oriented. General Magic: The Movie, a documentary, is a step above and highly recommended.
