The story of Microsoft and Apple – translated to Bill Gates and Steve Jobs – are central figures in the history of personal computing. In a fascinating but unfortunately short (under 6 minutes) video, 60 Minutes Overtime put together a number of interview highlights of Gates and Jobs by journalist Charlie Rose.

Gates his visibly choked up in one segment when talking about Jobs after his passing. One of the most interesting lines in the clip is when Gates tells about Jobs, in failing health, canceled a dinner at the last minute. “If he wants to know why,” Jobs told Gates’ secretary, “just tell him I’m an asshole.”
