Bill Gates has admitted a lot things about Steve Jobs over the years and this time during an interview with him he released some emotion when speaking of visiting Steve Jobs during the Apple CEO’s last memorable days. As the sense of personal competition has gone and when time has passed the memories become more acute and more accurate.
He said they talked about what they learned and about families which made Steve Jobs feel very comfortable and felt for.Bill Gates also said that they did have a conversation that was melancholy but it was clearly an emotional memory for Gates. Business is pure business and regarding that he admitted that Apple “ put the pieces” together on tablets and Microsoft did not do anything compared to that.
When Rose asked him what Jobs had that he wished he’d had, Gates replied:
But this interview appeared more personal than corporate. Perhaps , Gates gave more intimate answers to some of the questions posed. Gates has rarely shown weakness in public but , the touch of emotion he showed at the interview was a lot for a man and a time gone by.
