Why Bill Gates was jealous of “genius” Steve Jobs
Through being bitter rivals to being respectful of one another, and then becoming friends, There was a friendship between two tech titans — Bill Gates and Steve Jobs — on a continuum that had seen it all.
Two of the most influential tech men ever seen came together at the same time as Apple and Company were set up.
Microsoft was in the late 70s and early 80s. Since Jobs, Apple’s co-founder, died 9 years ago, Gates, co-founder of Microsoft shares anecdotes about their friendship from time to time.
In a recent interview with the Podcast Armchair Expert, Gates called Jobs a “genius” and also admitted that he was jealous of the iconic CEO of Apple.
Gates acknowledged that he was envious of the zeal Jobs had.
“The jobs were a genius, What he did, particularly when he came back to Apple, nobody else could do what he did there. I couldn’t have done that, “said Gates in the interview.
Microsoft’s co-founder said Jobs was a “wizard” When it came to inspiring people and making jokes, it was “so jealous” of that quality. “He was such a magician.
Over-motivating people — I was a minor wizard and I couldn’t fall under his spell — but I could see him cast a spell, Gates said it in a lighter way.
In previous interviews, Gates indicated that there was no competition for Jobs when it came to gathering talent and that his talents were not matched. The sense of design was really strong.
Gates has said that Apple was “on the road to death” before Jobs saved the company.
According to Gates, a lot of people wanted or could “imitate the bad parts of Steve” and that Jobs could be “an asshole” “Sometimes,” but “he bought some really good stuff along with the toughness.”
