Bill Gates on Steve Jobs –
“I was like a minor wizard because he would be casting spells, and I would see people mesmerized, but because I’m a minor wizard, the spells don’t work on me,” said Bill Gates, the world’s second-richest person…
“I have yet to meet any person who” could rival Jobs “in terms of picking talent, hyper-motivating that talent, and having a sense of design of, ‘Oh, this is good. This is not good,’ ” Gates added of his sometime collaborator and competitor.
“Even when he failed, he succeeded,” Gates said.
The full interview was broadcast by CNN on Sunday July 8.
MacDailyNews Take: ’Even when he failed, he succeeded?’ No wonder the world misses Steve Jobs and his magic so.
