Even when Steve Jobs failed, he succeeded: Bill Gates
He also said that Apple’s Steve Jobs was singular in his ability to take a company “on a path to die" and turn it into the world’s most valuable in part by “casting spells," billionaire Bill Gates said.
Gates spoke of Jobs, the Apple Inc. co-founder and chief executive officer who died of pancreatic cancer in 2011, in a segment on leadership to be broadcasted on Sunday on CNN.
“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 Gates, the world’s second-richest person, according to a transcript provided by the network.
Now a philanthropist with a fortune estimated at $107 billion, Bill Gates is now dedicatedly working towards improving lives through his foundation.
