There is no doubt that following this past weekend’s 60 Minutes show and the release of the official biography we are going to be hearing a lot of “Jobs quotes” from all over the place. While his biography isn’t on my must read list I can’t resist sharing this one quote that was part of a larger Bill Gates – Steve Jobs post on CNN Money.
One of the things that Gates is consistently accused of is being unimaginative and that he ripped off Jobs and Apple for the graphic user interface idea. This apparently led to a meeting between the two men, well at least Bill Gates and Jobs with ten executives watching from the sidelines; and is quoted from the book.
There is a lot of press written about how different the two men who forever changed our computing world were. I am of course referring to Bill Gates and Steve Jobs and how each of them has two totally different ideas of how computers and the people who used them should interact.
But, when it comes down to business were the men really that different?
Of course much of Bill Gates’ thoughts and behaviors regarding the business of computers and software is well documented but what about Steve Jobs?
