Taking the cue from my good blogging friend Eric, here is an 8 minute excerpt of Gates and Jobs being joint interviewed at the D5 WSJ Executive Conference. Sterling comments, jabs and complicity.
Two greats quotes (both from Jobs) from the interview:
At Apple, we have a saying of “The ship that leaks from the top…” [referring to management’s inability to keep a secret]
Referring to their relationship and quoting a Beatles song, Two of Us**: “You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.” From the Let It Be album, produced on the Apple label of course.
As for the interviewers (Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg), I felt that at times they were trying to upstage Jobs and Gates. Swisher in particular was a little gauche, although I liked her last question: What’s the biggest misunderstanding about their relationship (led to Jobs’ Beatles quote).
