olympic gold medalists those are the headlines the news continues here on al-jazeera but first it is face to face to stay watching. he and i in a sense grew up together we were within ear of the same age and you know we were kind of naïve really optimistic and built big company and most of it as rivals but we always retained a certain respect communication including even when he was sacked i got to go out and spend time with steve jobs the man of many lives wonderkid rebel a sort of new age guru of high tech. bill gates the
9:06 am
richest man in the world a relentless achiever fueled by dreams of greatness. to supernovas who synergy and rivalry led to the creation of a binary system with a friendly i don't think they called each others say no it's my birthday happy birthday i don't think it was that kind of relationship and microsoft's just you know that it's mcdonald's the only thing they had in common was having dropped out of school to pursue their vision of you dreams though they never worked in the same company they created an industry together and we have a hippie editor. gates and jobs the mightiest jewel of the tech industry has ever known the epic battle between mac and p.c. jobs the hippie and gates the geek literally dictated the future of the computer.
9:07 am
in the seventy's steve jobs and bill gates are still adolescents video games are just starting to appear. computers still are enormous machines super computers that only the largest companies can afford a market dominated by the american multinational i.b.m. . a native of seattle and son of a well family bill gates enjoys creating computer programs and software during his high school and university days with his friend paul allen. and bill gates and paul allen they were after harvard and at a computer store at the bookstore in harvard square there was a magazine popular electronics january one thousand seventy five and it had a picture of the l. tear on the cover that was the gun that was fired the start of the race for
9:08 am
them the all to all the dinosaurs of postum computer who's a rudimentary tool a mix of total switches and flashing lights it is reborn thanks to bill gates and paul island by creating a programming language for the ultima called basic they provide it with intelligence. level lucia knowing. the languages thing was what they were passionate about bill gates and paul allen's goal in one hundred seventy five was to dominate the languages business on personal computers that's why they left harvard immediately afterwards in april nine hundred seventy five gates and allen start their company microsoft the pope this is to sell basic but above all to develop new software for future computers also in one thousand nine hundred eighty five in palo alto california another do you own steve jobs and steve wozniak high school students who are fans of this new technology also discovered the ultimate h.
9:09 am
the start of an epic journey. steve was now he looked at that altitude for him this was not an elegant third. too many chips the thing was too big so immediately what was was doing as ed was saying i can design a computer all on one board this would be the one was in jokes and the first to succeed in putting all of the components that make a computer hooked onto a single board power supply keyboard and memory all connected to screen the two friends had just invented the personal computer making out the one was purely was his idea and it was purely his design but once he showed it to his good friend steve jobs steve is the marketing person that you see. we can make money. but for now the apple one is being manufactured in the jobs family garage.
9:10 am
i'm pretty much the only person who worked in the garage at least on the apple line . steve jobs was on the phone all the time he was in the kitchen on the phone i was in the garage testing up on boards one year after the founding of microsoft the apple computer companies established in april nine hundred seventy six microsoft and apple the two pillars of the computer revolution they both. of believed that computers were not just important but crucial. and. and yet they had a very different way of going after it jobs was coming from hardware and and gates was coming at it from software and that was so they came at it from two different directions but they both. were very strong minded
9:11 am
men who believed they were they were changing the world. while bill gates continues to develop his basic the silicon valley do you will push ahead steve wozniak develops the apple two while steve jobs looks for investors so that he can grow his young company. impressed by jobs angel investor mike marketa invests two hundred fifty thousand dollars in apple which expands and moves to cupertino where its headquarters are still located today. the how many calculators you want to marry and you have to use the automatic bank telling machines short so life is already seducing you into learning the stuff and it's certainly not an eight nine hundred eighty four ish biz vision at all it's just going to be very gradual and very human in will seduce you into learning how
9:12 am
to use jobs and was unveiled their new computer in the spring of one thousand nine hundred seventy seven at the computer fair in san francisco the apple two is a smash hit. the apple two was a huge that it was actually really the first usable personal computer the apple two always you know i always thought it was magical because you could do almost anything you thought of if he were creative enough the apple to the first personal computer designed for the general public the sales are phenomenal it in bodies the computer revolution but it has a serious handicap and the person who has the solution is bill gates was the acro version of basic but it wasn't. completely up to date that was a certain aspect of it that wasn't in there so they began looking around for another version of basic that ran on that ship at the apple two used and microsoft
9:13 am
was a company that had it so they got in touch with bill gates. with basic microsoft supplies with the apple two locks this is the first collaboration between bill gates and steve joel but at the end of the seventy's thanks to the success of the aapl to the spotlight is on steve jobs and then in one nine hundred eighty they went public so there are all these people have stock that got very rich and it was one of the first public companies in the personal computer space where people got rich so then people turn to really paying attention what's it like to get rich. it's very interesting i was worth. about over a million dollars when i was twenty three. and over ten million dollars when i was twenty four and over one hundred million dollars and i was twenty five but. especially at that point in my life it was it was not the most important thing the
9:14 am
most important thing was the company the people the products we were making the products also the obsession of. his vision of a world organized a run software. there's a lot of people who are forecasting that they'll be software stores just like their record stores today and that they'll be thousands and thousands of those and i think i'd have to agree with that or mine of those first product was basic and that was sold to apple and that was sold to radio shack and commodore they were all customers so he already was doing business with sort of everybody that was trying to make personal computers he was the first person to really have the idea of a software company separately from a hardware company and that maybe the software company was going to create more value the hardware. but apple was the big elephant you know bill gates was the mouse so bill gates being that position he was
9:15 am
a scheming you know strategic guy and he managed to work his company up despite the fact that the giants of the personal computer business apple and to some extent in i.b.m. were giants and he had to get his software on to them in order to grow his company . i.b.m. the computer hardware giant soon entered the new personal computer market but computing was a nothing without software so i.b.m. known as big blue turns to bill gates who seizes the opportunity and in one thousand nine hundred eighty signs of a lucrative contract with i.b.m. his new computer operating system would run on all i.b.m. p.c.'s and most dos is the backbone of the p.c. and it makes the computer easier to use. the smartest thing he did maybe the smartest thing he ever did in the computer business was that he got
9:16 am
i.b.m. to sign a deal that gave him a one time payment i don't allow him to license it other people who might clone i b m's peacey. i b.m. did not really think anybody else was in a successfully clone their p.c. so they didn't care it's bill gates's must have strong in addition to his contract with i.b.m. he retains the right to sell his computer operating system to any of big blue's competitors bring go with dos gates sets the software standard for the entire p.c. industry i'd say within six months of him doing the i.b.m. deal. everybody in seoul can value about microsoft the. in the early eighties steve jobs and bill gates are still under thirty two key players in a rapidly expanding industry meteoric success stories for two very different
9:17 am
personalities. robert cringely knew both men well he worked with gates and jobs starting in the late seventy's a former staff member at apple he switched to journalism and for more than thirty years has written about their rivalry with bill was always about the money with steve it was never about the money and money is nice but it was never about them i am so that that made them black and white you know up the dow up because they were there very very different people i hired steve jobs at atari when i think hughes ninety and. he was very sure of himself. and i was quick to judge whether he thought you were smart or dumb and if he thought you were dumb he was very dismissive even if you were his supervisor
9:18 am
he he was very good at knowing what he wanted and he would just steamroll you into doing it and he definitely relied on his instincts a lot he relied on his gut he talked about that all the time and that's a certain type of spiritual dimension of being into being you know we had read books about for instance goren chief a famous russian spiritual master who was always talking about integration and the horror of this which means using all your faculties which means using your third eye of vision. in the seventies like many of the hippies at the time steve jobs and his friends daniel cost could leave to go to india the trip is a rite of passage a search for spiritual wisdom. we were looking for
9:19 am
a wise man who had secrets of knowledge for us. nothing really might happen to us we did not find the guru we hoped we would find. steve would talk about all this. spiritual stuff and yet he could be a cool person you know he he he had real troubles with intimacy he couldn't allow himself to get close to people. i don't know why you know he loved the idea of spiritualism but to live it was hard for him. and bill is just geeky you know he's he he's just a very nerdy guy and as such in especially his early years he had problems communicating and being understood and his family didn't know what to do with them
9:20 am
and he found his niche in business and technology and succeeding just on the basis of brainpower steve jobs and much better marketeer them than bill gates was but he was not really that technical he was not a technical code writer bill gates could write code and write good code bill just different he led with the data and with the inside in the technology and the idea were steve led with you know what's it feel like to look like you know so. much more technical much more marketing where we are one. in one recent one. was.
9:21 am
in one thousand nine hundred forty jobs the king of marketing unleashes a groundbreaking advertising campaign this is to promote his newest creation the legendary macintosh a rampart against the our well in world of the giant i.b.m. after the macintosh nothing would ever be the same again simpler operating features new design the most appears and the graphics interface those little windows that make life so much easier these innovations combined with software developed by microsoft like excel and word make the mag an overwhelming success in fact bill gates becomes a key figure in promoting the mac for years now it's a great machine it's a step forward in terms of the way uses graphics and the speed of. business machine that a lot of people are going to be able to afford that's a very very useful machine there was
9:22 am
a lot of collaboration on the market there was microsoft drugs really great. things for the for the muck you know excel came out first on the atmosphere was fine when he came i remember the first couple times remember that we were not competitors at all at that point they were our allies and helping making the macintosh happen so we got along very well with them they were similar to us in many ways. brought them to the macintosh software dating game. software ceos can i please ask you to introduce yourself in a poverty of the dating game hosted by jones the contestants of the software producers who contributed to the success of the my name is bill gates i'm chairman of microsoft and during one nine hundred eighty four microsoft expects to get half of its revenue as a macintosh. behind the smiling facade steve jobs place
9:23 am
the king and treats bill gates like a vassal for making the numbers three describe your ideal relationship with apple. will be so in our software independently so the key thing is that apple gets a lot of consistent standard machines out there quickly i spent the whole time two days in a y. e with bill being ignored we were treated like some crappy little it was like the most oh it was horrible we went for a walk bill and i went for a walk all the way the diamond head and back on the beach talking about how screwed we were like which is what we're going to do lotus going to kill us we are so screwed we had were processed into excel were just like we're just excel sat an extra because they were just bonus offer it. bill gates is bitter but we tains his foresight the monks were known graphics interface
9:24 am
represents the future of personal computer use without a qualm he makes his move. you know i didn't trust bill gates you know while we were working on the macintosh add was one of the first people apple to catch on to the fact that microsoft was cloning the macintosh they were making their own version of the macintosh operating system. i was always on the phone with a fellow who was in charge of microsoft's application software he was asking me questions about how the macintosh system software work that he didn't need to know to do what he was doing so i kind of caught on to the idea hey they're copying the mac. i told steve he wasn't worried about it at all job's is in reach twenty learns that microsoft is launching a new operating system windows there was a pretty strong disagreement on windows game you know then that was probably of all of the things that are applicable to the companies i was the i was the listening to
9:25 am
that upset out the most and it was so clear people of their. voyage. and the summer and certainly you know i'm sure upset steve to some some expound. he was very upset and his first reaction was get bill gates down here tomorrow and i thought well boy you can't just call your competitor down it might take a week or something but i was amazed or was there the very next day. i was very impressed by bill gates because there was an extremely angry steve jobs in there and there are maybe eight or ten other apple people but just bill from microsoft you know entourage you know you know when they're with angry steve jobs pouring down i'm just yelling at him you betrayed us how could you how could you be traitorous and bill gates as cool as can be said back well steve that's one way of
9:26 am
looking at it i have another way of looking at it he knew that the. graphical user interface was the future of computing and so if he wanted to be to remain in you know dos was everything dos was huge but he knew that if he didn't do windows he'd be out of business. bill gates goes on the offensive job's over it he had a taste of this when renewing licensing for b.c. which he quipped apple to stupidity knows best selling computer it's the end of their collaboration now it's open more for here they had a negotiation and bill held out for a extremely high price that he didn't expect to get and steve sell trapped and so he paid bill what bill asked he overpay for the contract extension on. the microsoft basic they made so much money from
9:27 am
that apple contract that they devoted the excess money the money they never expected to get to creating an international business we always talk about companies plane crafts it's a chess game well everybody else was playing chess bill was playing three dimensional chess he already had his move on another board already calculated from three moves on the previous board so if you look at the fact that microsoft more than half of microsoft's business is now outside of america. that wouldn't have happened without apple. with gates increasing success job's becomes even move of a megalomaniac the world no revolves around him he creates his own personality cult the machine is his and it literally recognizes him as its father.
9:28 am
listen. it it will it's going to. introduce them bad. oh i think if you talk to a lot of people in that team they will tell you. it was the hardest they've ever worked in their life some of them will tell you was you know the happiest they've ever been in their life but thank all of them will tell you that is certainly one of the most intense and cherish experiences they will ever have. yeah i do so. you know it's. some of those things you are not sustainable for some people. personal stories of lebanese villagers on the border with israel the blue line runs
9:29 am
through this period their daily struggles and the moment when we go get it we're just the forces stop us when we go there the. void and the peaceful protests through them in the place of the interior means defiance and resistance that at this new time it's means nothing at night and freedom life on the edge of cross border tension lebannon living on the blue line at this time on al-jazeera. in a world where journalism as an industry is changing we had al jazeera fortunate to be able to continue to expand to continue to have that passenger drive and present the stories in a way that is important to worthless. everyone has a story worth hearing. and cover those that are often ignored we don't weigh our coverage towards one particular region or continent that's why i joined al-jazeera . rewinds returns with new updates on the best of al-jazeera as

9:33 am
u.s. olympic gold medalists those are the headlines the news will continue in half an hour but let's get you back to face to face. a difficult leader who is close to steve jobs described him as unapologetically pragmatic a dictator who ruled by instinct more than loyalty he believed. very small groups of people being coursed in the greatness. that was in part because he felt that he could only. lead i have told people in the us and so why not lead the best sample so he was constantly trying to figure out who is the best ever you know i was fired by steve jobs three times i was fired because i kept dropping out of the best.
9:34 am
i'm john sculley president apple in one thousand nine hundred three steve jobs lures joan sculley away from pepsi cola to become c.e.o. of apple with this legendary phrase you want to keep selling sugar water all your life or do you want to come with me and change the world they start off as the perfect do you do to mediocre mac sales combined with jobs increasingly to run ical counted to the honeymoon is soon over. it came down to eventually on the board a war between john sculley and steve jobs and in the end because steve jobs had actually burned out so many people and created so much animosity and fear about himself when the board came to a vote it was almost like the entire company voted that would they would rather not
9:35 am
have steve jobs around anymore. tell us about your departure from that. it was very painful i'm not even sure i want to talk about it. what can i say i had the wrong guy that was stolen. and. he destroyed everything i spent ten years working for and a friend of mine who was working at apple that day the day that steve left and they were all called out of their offices and they all assembled down on the in the parking lot and sat on the curb and everything and they were. told our one of our you know our founder steve jobs is leaving the company and nobody care they're like good good we can get our work done with all of this craziness and madness and nobody cared. for steve jobs his eviction from apple in one nine hundred eighty
9:36 am
five it feels like the tragic end of a love story he has been robbed of his child soon afterward using his own money he creates a new company next he is going to prove to everyone that he doesn't need outpolling and will continue to revolutionize the world of computers in his own mind he was the sole genius behind apple stores but we got it right now. thanks to mr and mrs needed friends you needed people to help. and microsoft never did anything for me. but they didn't oppose next either you know bill didn't seem next as a factor. he didn't see he didn't seem next to as good as being evil having the attention of success and so he didn't have to oppose it.
9:37 am
first thing to look at in this product is user interface that's perhaps the most important thing about this product this is the user interface of windows two point zero of windows in the late eighty's after a basic and dos bill gates wanted his new operating system windows to become the standard system worldwide roland hansen is the man who made bill gates the software industry's number one media figure and it's also due to this marketing wizard that windows the graphics into fees which would conquer the world owes its name. we realized that the opinion really not or they weren't calling these buoys none of these right we're calling them goodies anymore they were calling them all windowing systems because they were creating windows on the screen. horizon a holy crap if these are all we're doing systems there's only one name we can
9:38 am
be we have to be microsoft windows. well windows ninety five is so easy even a talk show host figured out. windows was an affront. to jobs windows was an insult to jobs. distant relative of mine windows in just ten years is installed in almost all computers on the market gaining monetary success with windows ninety five gates and the p.c. definitively dethrone the mac. if you make i've grown man cry. windows was
9:39 am
a way to move everything that he wanted to do forward it was the foundation for everything that followed. that was one of the windows ninety eight came out real revolution personal computer windows as you point out as are ninety percent of the computers around the world i mean today still is a phenomenal fact. and i don't see that changing anytime soon with the fantastic success of windows ninety five the geek from seattle becomes the monster of software and also the richest man in the world interviewed at the time by robert cringely steve jobs expresses his contempt in a few stinging words he describes what caused the break between him and his old wife the only problem of microsoft is they just have no taste they have absolutely no taste and. that means is that i don't mean that in a small way i mean in a big way. so i guess. i am saddened not by microsoft's success i have
9:40 am
no problem with their success they've earned their success for the most part i have a problem with the fact that they just make really third rate products their products have no spirit to them the. the steve decided that. maybe he had gone too far so he called he called bill on the phone to apologize and he said he said bill. you know i saw the documentary you know i think i think maybe maybe i shouldn't have said that publicly about about having no tastes and and bill said well thank you steve you know our really want to thank you for doing that i think you went too far and then bill said and then steve said but it's true you know you
9:41 am
have no. i think i should have said it publicly but you know it's true and bill said steve i may have no taste but you said my whole company as though it's case. after the failure of next and by the success of his wife bill gates jobs gets back on his feet by investing in pixar a computer animation film company that would become a good mine and as usual he takes food credit for it. but when i first met ed catmull who ran the computer division of lucas film who i founded pixar with we did it together. and showed me what they were working on and i was i was blown away in the graphics were you know years beyond anything i'd ever seen before and he told me of his dream to make the first computer animated feature film and i bought into that dream both sort of emotionally and financially and we
9:42 am
found a pixar. it's just wrong you know it's just wrong that's the part of the marketing story that he sold about himself which is a good story but it's just wrong he's not pixar these the money at pixar he seductively narcissistic or to feel that something's just not right there but. whenever he wants to sell something boy does he do it including himself in one thousand nine hundred ninety five toy story is the first fully computer running mate of film to become a blockbuster it paves the way for pics on his continued success propelling a triumphant steve jobs to center stage once again and here's where steve did something he was really good at he grabbed the moment. and he took the company public based on nothing we had basically no cash. we just had this movie and then
9:43 am
your critics it was going to be good and he took this is where he can sell something right he took that idea and sold it to pixar public became a billionaire overnight ten years after job's departure apple still hasn't recovered the company is on the verge of bankruptcy one last card to play the return of the wonder boy apple appoints jobs i see and bice's former failing company next when he came back to apple in nine hundred ninety six he was a much more mature much better you know he'd gone through a success of one company with a failure of another so he had left his youthful craziness behind it. i think is one of the greatest turnarounds in the history of any industry in any country anywhere to have a man come back to a company that is really going down very rapidly. in very bad shape and
9:44 am
then pull off that success that he did something half of it that that did changed and what i believe it was was that for the first time it was his money next it was his money he was losing. at apple it was arthur rock's money you know it was the it was the public's money it was wall street's money it wasn't real money. to his return to apple steve jobs back into mind develops a new plan of action an occasion to make an amazing the known to his adoring public . and i'd like to announce one of our first partnerships today a very very meaningful one and that is one with microsoft. the discussions actually began because there was some. patent disputes and rather than now i know. rather
9:45 am
than now repeating history i'm extremely proud of both companies that they have resolved these differences in a very very professional way and i happen to have a special guest with me today via satellite downlink and if we could get him up on the stage right now. that i've done in my career bill was genuinely happy when steve came by i think he recognized and felt. that losing apples as a successful company wouldn't be good for the industry and so and i think that was. that was when the relationship became closer and the relationship stayed close bill didn't do a favor for the city what bill did was microsoft had
9:46 am
a successful business selling macintosh applications they were making a profit selling macintosh applications if apple went out of business the back software business at microsoft would go out of this is to. so he had a franchise to protect. now the fact that steve jobs will sort of cross a line you know made it better bill gates has another motive for coming to steve jobs eight the antitrust lawsuits pending against microsoft over its ten year windows monopoly. i'm here to share my story and answer questions about microsoft and the p.c. industry. i hope that my testimony helps the court to resolve the issues in this case that would be bill. especially after the trust battle. really. the day to day part of the company was really.
9:47 am
getting to be very hard on him and that. microsoft was so big and so successful that it was a time that he could move on and go on to something else. as gates steps a selling job is clients to new heights he adopts a new concept the ad campaign think different a return to his original idea of simplicity. the pain i most respect about apple is they have found a way to make complex things something. that was the thing different campaign thing different really got you the fare but then when you went to really explored. it was there for. a brilliant marketing idea for the i'm back the new home computer
9:48 am
that gives its users the feeling of being special set apart from the standardised world of the p.c. . then he said ok i could build macintosh this forever but that would be boring so we're going to create the digital. abs strategy and we're going to create the i pod in the i phone and the touch pad and everything and they're going to connect through computers but the computers only but. if we're going to carry their computers around and that's the strategy for ninety seven ninety eight ninety nine when they came up with that so then he could do what he did best which was designed brand new products so that steve jobs is that it's like i am an alchemist i am a magician you know i am going to make this rabbit disappear i'm not just going to make a rabbit i made disappear i want to make the buttons move around they like things that are matched. with the world steve jobs makes
9:49 am

9:53 am
a vigilant tie on microsoft but today the dreams he no choose on linked to humanitarian causes is go down in history as the world's greatest when he was no doubt about no one come closer and so i think for anybody else whether of steve jobs or whoever your view of bill changed a little bit when you saw what a good job he was doing i mean it wasn't like some guy screwing around with rock stars and occasionally showing up at a charity fundraiser because it really focused you know like achievable goals you know why about malaria no big deal you know things are just amazing right. what individual in the history of money has devoted twenty billion dollars to anything. no one would give bill gates so he's you know plays to win a place to win. steve never got their state never give a penny pincher i once had a conversation with steve much later after bill gates retired from microsoft and he

peaceful rivalry first i called jobs because i thought he'd be the hardest to get and he said bill does it i will do it but we have to keep it i want to keep it on a high level i don't want to just be a fight with the greatest misunderstand between you and your relationship and about eat each other what would you say would be we've kept our marriage secret for over a decade now and i work competitors in certain ways we watch the american way right the commercials and you get annoyed at each other from there i know i have to confess i like p.c. guy but yeah he's great i know you know that i want our to those you know the art of those commercials is not to be me but it's actually for the guys to like each other. on their.

p.c. guys p.c. guys great i like a lot of the one his mother loves this mother not just i have the bills still viewed. as kind of a freak and he's fascinated by you know the. people say well why should you let. steve treat you that way and bill that even though he was being treated a certain way he was just watching this and saying who is this guy you know i do how does this work i have is there an algorithm here i don't because i don't get it at. with steve jobs health deteriorating bill gates paid a last visit to his longtime rival and friend it would be a bittersweet and the last chapter in a legendary jewel. after a lifetime of enervation steve jobs died on october the fifth two thousand and eleven. bill gates and steve jobs high tech giants who
