In a new interview with Yahoo! and ABC News, Bill Gates took time to discuss his thoughts on Jobs’ death and what it has meant to him. In the interview, Gates recalls his unannounced visit to Jobs’ house just weeks before his death:
He and I always enjoyed talking. He would throw some things out, you know, some stimulating things. We’d talk about the other companies that have come along. We talked about our families and how lucky we’d both been in terms of the women we married. It was great relaxed conversation.
More interesting than the interactions between the two, however, is what Gates has taken from Jobs’ passing:
It reminds you that you gotta pick important stuff, because you only have a limited time.
