    The story about Jobs turning down a dinner with Gates is classic.

    The full 60 Minutes interview is really interesting. Gates seems far more energized now than he ever seemed to be at Microsoft, and I have great admiration for what he's doing.

    I like Bill Gates (and Steve Jobs too). I think Bill is a class act, humble respectable and genuine. That was a nice interview.

    That was great!

    I really enjoyed that! I like the new Bill Gates a lot better than I used to. I felt like that brought a sense to their personalities and friendship that I haven't seen very much of in the past.

    This is hilarious. They are interviewing the interviewer about someone else he interviewed.

    Indeed. And I think many of us will miss Bill Gates, too, when his time comes. Great men, both.

    Totally agree - even in those clips he seems more alive than he did. The footage from old interviews makes for a fascinating contrast with the modern interview. Great what he is doing. Great example for others also.

    Each time I see Steve speaking/presenting, I understand just what a presence he was at Apple, and for the brand in general.

    Steve and Bill were there from the beginning, and I'm glad they got a chance at D to speak together.

    For those here that have never read "Fire In The Valley," I would urge you to get to Amazon and get a copy. That was the first book I read on the PC revolution, what a great book that was.

    Apple will always be a bite short of pristine now that Steve is gone.

    I agree completely, it's nice to see that he's being perceived that way now. His interviews are a total pleasure to watch these days.

    Now if only someone could transform Steve Ballmer in a similar way... but that's impossible :D .

    Almost enough to forget how ruthless Bill Gates was in Microsoft's early years...

    Is that Waldo? Nope, just Steve. Guess I'll have to keep searching...

    What a world of difference between Gates and Ballmer.

    Also RIP Mr Jobs.

    Well, now that Bill no longer helms MS and has devoted his life to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, he can be more circumspect than 25-30 years ago when the two were in the thick of it, and growing their respective empires.

    Yeah, I can tell just by your username. :D

    But seriously, he brought spice to Apple that unfortunately Apple is missing now.
