Bill Gates and Steve Jobs: A Rare Glimpse Into Their 30 Year Relationship

Hola Todos!

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.

There no question these two had a complex relationship but there is also no question that their relationship was special and unique.  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.”

Something to watch today…

Topic Talk Thursdays – Thoughts from Bill Gates

Hola Todos!

Today’s Topic Talk is from none other than Mr. Bill Gates.  No, Mr. Gates was not one of my students but I follow him as his connection to Apple and Steve Jobs is undeniable in the history and development of Apple.  In addition, Mr. Gates runs the most charitable organization in the history of human kind and one of his major initiatives is to fix the American school system.

In his interview on ABC News (click here), Mr. Gates talks about a wide range of topics including about how Steve Jobs’ death affected him, his fix for American schools and the trampoline in his house.

There are links all over the page so make sure you do not miss any of the video segments.

Something to think about today…
