Fascinating interview with Steve Jobs and Bill Gates

In 2007, All Things Digital held a fascinating interview with both Bill Gates and Steve Jobs.

The interview runs long and is spread out over multiple clips. I’ve only included the first handful here. Watch the rest on youtube.

It’s clear that they have a reasonably good relationship and clearly know each other well. They have a genuine and sincere respect for each other. It’s amazing how firm a grasp both have on the industry as a whole. Steve is clearly passionate about the engineering aspects of his business, while Bill is full geek about the coding and operates very much in a shrewd business mentality.

Clip 3 contains some jabs at each other.. where else, but on the desktop / os space.

In clip 5 they both are on the same page taking a single stance.. which now 2 years later is obviously against Google.
