  • Apple CEO Steve Jobs and Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates made their much anticipated stage debut at The Wall Street Journal's D conference late Wednesday. The meeting, one of the rare occasions where the two tech luminaries shared a stage, resembled a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame enshrinement, according to Dan Farber's post.

  • Much of the talk focused on the future of computing. Regarding Jobs' legendary product vision, Gates said, "I would give a lot to have Steve's taste. In terms of intuitive taste for people and products, I sat in Mac product reviews...and look at it as an engineering question.I see Steve make decisions based on people and products-it's magical."From left to right: Walt Mossberg, Kara Swisher, Jobs and Gates.
