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

Bill Gates was recently interviewed for television, and while the main focus was the work of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the late Steve Jobs also got a mention. 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.

The visit was also the subject of an interview with Walter Issacson for the Steve Jobs Biography. Gates also recalls how Jobs was engrossed in the construction of his super-yacht, Venus, and how he looked forward to spending time upon it.

And, on the subject of a cancelled dinner invitation that had been extended to Jobs, he called up Gates and said to his secretary:

"If he wants to know why, just tell him I'm an @$$#0!3"
