For Apple fans, this five-minute video is certainly worth watching. In it, the Microsoft co-founder states that Jobs' "sense of design," his understanding of branding, and his "intuitive" knowledge of marketing were three skills that Gates himself could not match, and which contributed to Apple's success in developing and launching the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Gates also discusses the time he spent with Jobs during the Apple co-founder's final months. Take a look at the video now, and let us know what you think.
