After a long time I am seeing Bill talking on technology. Though he is still chairman of Microsoft, he is more focussed on running his non-profit organization to help sick and needy people all over the world.
In this interview Bill Gates repeatedly makes a point that the world is realizing the importance of software and the mobile’s success is actually due to the Software. It’s funny, and he may be right, that he laughed when the interviewed commented that Apple stock and valuation is dwarfing Microsoft. Per Bill, the stock prices go up and down but what is important is the tech asset it has. He did acknowledge the great work that Apple, Google and Microsoft are doing in terms of innovation in delivering fascinating technologies. Finally, it seems to be an agreement that the world is moving more towards tablets and mobile devices than desktop PCs.
