In an extremely candid interview with Charlie Rose on 60 Minutes this week, Microsoft founder and chairman Bill Gates got teary-eyed as he spoke about his one-time rival, Apple founder Steve Jobs. The two tech icons, whose birthdays are only six months apart, "grew up together," said Gates, having accomplished "every fantasy we had about creating products" during their respective tenures.
In this 60 Minutes Overtime clip, editor Ann Silvio talks with Charlie Rose about Bill Gates' emotional recollection of his last visit with Steve Jobs.
In the revealing interview, Bill spoke very openly about what he admired most about Steve. "I wish I had his sense of design . . . design can lead you in a good direction and phenomenal [Apple] products came out of it," Bill confessed.
But the most touching moment of the 60 Minutes feature actually came from Steve. At a 2007 All Things D panel with both tech executives, Steve explained his relationship with the Microsoft chairman this way: "I think of most things in life as a Bob Dylan or Beatles song and there's one line in a Beatle song that sticks out . . . 'You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead' — and that's clearly true here."
Although their companies competed against each other for technology, talent, and market share, there's no denying that Bill Gates and Steve Jobs highly respected each other and had an extremely unique camaraderie. Very few men knew the Apple founder so well, and it's evident that Steve's presence in the industry is missed, a sentiment current Apple CEO Tim Cook echoed earlier this year.
