Gates Misses Chance To Yell, 'I Got the Loot, Steve!'
Bill Gates, perhaps not a fan of the iconic late-'90s TV movie Pirates
of Silicon Valley
(a tried and true RCPU favorite), apparently missed
the opportunity to shout "I got the loot, Steve!" at Apple chief Steve
Jobs when the two of them appeared
together on stage yesterday
for the first time in quite a while.
There was some fun, though, at the Wall Street Journal's D conference (check
out some video here),
with Jobs both taking
swipes at Windows and also showing his softer, more compassionate side when
PC Guy from the now-famous Mac ads.
By most accounts, the two yucked it up quite a bit and got along famously.
And hey, why not? Sure, they're fierce competitors (well, Gates used to be,
at least -- he's about to head off into the sunset and his charity work), but
when you've got the cash that both of these guys have, how angry at anybody
could you really be?
