Bill Gates talks about his last visit with Steve Jobs, and a cancelled dinner!

I don't want to spoil it for you, but in the clip above from CBS News' 60 Minutes, Gates emotionally talks about his last visit with Jobs, and how they talked about how education hasn't really been improved by technology yet.

Apple's botched MobileMe launch and the failure of fear-based management

MobileMe launched in 2008 as a replacement for .Mac and ended up being replaced itself just three short years later by iCloud. So terrible was its launch, so tarnished was was the perception of its service, that Steve Jobs reportedly walked the halls of Apple with a flame-thrower, dressing down the troops and handing over responsibility for the service to his fixer, Eddy Cue. But was MobileMe's failings the fault of the engineers, or of the managers in charge of the project? Former member of the MobileMe team, Erin Caton believes the latter:

Development of the next two iPhones began under Steve Jobs, of course

One does not simply pull an iPhone whole from the void and birth it in a single day. As anyone involved in the design, development, and manufacturing of iPhone-class products will tell you, it takes a long, long time and roadmaps typically stretch out over years. So, it comes as little surprise that the next two generations of iPhone, likely including an S-type update to the current iPhone 5, began under the direction of Steve Jobs. Still, given Jobs legacy, hearing it reaffirmed again seems to make many people happy. Which brings us to Mike Aldrax's report in the San Francisco Examiner:

Steve Jobs' 2007 iPhone prank still gets local Starbucks orders for 4,000 lattes

Any true Apple fan will remember when Steve Jobs got up on stage and announced the first iPhone. You may also remember that one of his first calls was a prank call to a Starbucks location in California. He jokingly asked for 4,000 lattes to go and quickly said he was kidding and hung up. As it happens, this on-stage prank still spurs phones calls for the same order to that same Starbucks location.

How Steve Jobs and the iPhone changed AT&T

Getting cranky phone calls from Steve Jobs demanding to know why you're wasting his time with 100 pages on keyboards.

That's just some of what AT&T and their executives experienced when they signed the exclusive deal with Apple for the iPhone.
