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.
