Bill Gates and Steve Jobs Share Stage at All Things Digital Conference [Updated]
As reported earlier in the week Steve Jobs and Bill Gates took the stage a few hours ago with Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher.
Soon the great Silicon Valley soap opera will come full circle. Not since Apple CEO Steve Jobs famously interviewed Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates as a possible suitor during the “Macintosh Dating Game” back in 1984 have the two men appeared in a joint bill. And in a few moments, the two will share a stage tonight for the first time in more than 20 years for what promises to be a historic discussion.
No notable points came from the interview but some detailed history of both the companies and how they collaborated in the beginning is spoke about.
The subject of .Mac came up once when Walt stated that Apple had let it dwindle. Steve replied “I couldn’t agree more, and we’ll make up for lost time in the near future.”
