VIDEO: The dynamic friendship of Bill Gates and Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs and Bill Gates were both rivals and old friends whose technological innovations and contrasting personalities created a fascinating dynamic. Gates admired Jobs for his ability to connect with people, while Jobs admired the technicaly wizardry of Gates. Whenever they were both in conversation, Jobs would often dominate the discussion. This was partly due to the powerful persona of Jobs, but also reflected how Gates genuinely enjoyed analytically observing fascinating phenomena. However, they often scathingly criticized one another when out of earshot. As far as friendship, Gates is described as the more loyal friend while Jobs is described as the more entertaining friend.
