Responding to unflattering comments made about him in Apple co-founder Steve Jobs’s new biography, Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates said he’s not bothered by the remarks.
The book “Steve Jobs” by author Walter Isaacson, released last week, includes comments from both Jobs and Gates about one another. While Gates said he found Jobs to be a “weirdly flawed human being,” Jobs asserted that Gates was a “basically unimaginative” person who “never invented anything… He just shamelessly ripped off other people’s ideas.”
Upon hearing those comments, Gates spoke with ABC’s This Week, and said he was not bothered by negative remarks made by Jobs. He admitted that Jobs said “a lot of very nice things about him,” in addition to “a lot of tough things.”
