Antes de que Steve Jobs muriera, Bill Gates tuvo la oportunidad de hacer una visita a su amigo de tantos años y por supuesto contrincante en este mercado donde ambos han sido quienes dominaron por años los renglones. También en el video que veras a continuación Bill Gates habla de su labor filantrópica a la cual el junto a su esposa Melinda se han dedicado desde que el ex CEO de Microsoft cedió su puesto a Steve Ballmer.
“He and I always enjoyed talking. He would throw some things out, you know, some stimulating things. We’d talk about the other companies that have come along. We talked about our families and how lucky we’d both been in terms of the women we married. It was great relaxed conversation.”
How did Jobs’ death affect him? “Well, it’s very strange to have somebody who’s so vibrant and made such a huge difference and been … kind of a constant presence, to have him die,” Gates said. “It makes you feel like, ‘Wow, we’re getting old.’ I hope I still have quite a bit of time for the focus I have now, which is the philanthropic work. And there’s drugs we’re investing in now that won’t be out for 15 years — malaria eradication, I need a couple of decades here to fulfill that opportunity. But, you know, it reminds you that you gotta pick important stuff, because you only have a limited time.”
