'Bill Gates 2.0' interview focuses on the Microsoft founder after Microsoft, plus a few words about Apple and Jobs
But Gates also touched on Microsoft tablets, adamantly defending his company and the fact that it was the first one that made tablets long before the iPad. The Microsoft chairman however admitted that Apple was the first one to truly unleash tablets’ marketing potential.
The most interesting part of the interview for techies comes when he elaborates on former rival Steve Jobs. The two have had a rocky relationship in the tech industry, but despite the few harsh words we’ve heard from Jobs in regards to Gates, the Microsoft executive spoke about the two remaining on friendly grounds. Gates has paid Jobs a visit after he got ill and the topics of their conversations were not just about technology (they did discuss Jobs’ dream yacht that he never got to sail on), but also about family.
As a take-out, it’s telling to see how two of the industry’s giants have overcome their differences and despite the fierce rivalry remained in a friendly disposition to each other. Take a look at the interview right below.

Gates popularized PCs, Jobs popularized touchscreen phones, now Google is using the popularity of both and gradually combining them into one OS that will gradually replace both.

What an amazing man Bill Gates is, he brought on one of the largest Technology revolutions and strives forward to get rid of disease and world problems with his charity and money.

Maybe he should bring Microsoft, Google and Apple together and hammer out a cross licensing agreement. So everyone could get back to their respective business of making great tech devices.

The only thing I can think of that would be harder than ridding the world of diseases would be ridding the greed of three fierce business competitors.
I think he's better off doing what he's doing.

Say it out lout, to yourself, without any pause.
Proper puncutation helps. It can also mean life or death--example: "Let's eat, Grandpa" vs "Let's eat Grandpa."

Tried your exercise and, again, made perfect sense. Sorry you're having such a hard time at it.

lmao then you don't understand proper punctuation and grammar.
17. NexusKoolaid (Posts: 323; Member since: 24 Oct 2011)
I understand it perfectly, I'm just not one who needs to see perfect punctuation and grammar to understand what people are trying to say. I guess reading comprehension is becoming a lost skill in the age or spellcheckers and auto-correct.

I hope to be at least 1% of the man Bill Gates is in my life.

It's amazing to see how much respect the two had for eachother, dispite there differences. Bill is a good man, and I wish him the best.
