An Emotional Bill Gates Talks About Steve Jobs on '60 Minutes'

Gates grew emotional as he recalled visiting Jobs just before his death. The billionaire welled up as he described their last conversation, which he described as "forward-looking."

"He showed me the boat he was working on," said Gates, "and talked about how he's looking forward to being on it, even though we both knew there was a good chance that wouldn't happen."

Embedded above is a "60 Minutes Overtime" follow-up interview of Charlie Rose talking about Gates and Jobs, interspersed with Jobs-related clips from the Gates interview. The full segment of Rose interviewing Gates is also available.

The story about Jobs turning down a dinner with Gates is classic.

The full 60 Minutes interview is really interesting. Gates seems far more energized now than he ever seemed to be at Microsoft, and I have great admiration for what he's doing.

I like Bill Gates (and Steve Jobs too). I think Bill is a class act, humble respectable and genuine. That was a nice interview.

Indeed. And I think many of us will miss Bill Gates, too, when his time comes. Great men, both.

I really enjoyed that! I like the new Bill Gates a lot better than I used to. I felt like that brought a sense to their personalities and friendship that I haven't seen very much of in the past.
