I actually thought that it would be a little confusing during the same period of your life to be in one meeting when you're trying to make money, and then go to another meeting where you're giving it away.
~ Bill Gates
I think it's fair to say that personal computers have become the most empowering tool we've ever created. They're tools of communication, they're tools of creativity, and they can be shaped by their user.
~ Bill Gates
Whether it's Google or Apple or free software, we've got some fantastic competitors and it keeps us on our toes.

~ Bill Gates
At Microsoft there are lots of brilliant ideas but the image is that they all come from the top - I'm afraid that's not quite right.
~ Bill Gates
As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.
~ Bill Gates
I believe that if you show people the problems and you show them the solutions they will be moved to act.
~ Bill Gates
Microsoft is not about greed. It's about innovation and fairness.
~ Bill Gates
Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself.
~ Bill Gates
Like almost everyone who uses e-mail, I receive a ton of spam every day. Much of it offers to help me get out of debt or get rich quick. It would be funny if it weren't so exciting.
~ Bill Gates
Now, we put out a lot of carbon dioxide every year, over 26 billion tons. For each American, it's about 20 tons. For people in poor countries, it's less than one ton. It's an average of about five tons for everyone on the planet. And, somehow, we have to make changes that will bring that down to zero.
~ Bill Gates
Security is, I would say, our top priority because for all the exciting things you will be able to do with computers - organizing your lives, staying in touch with people, being creative - if we don't solve these security problems, then people will hold back.
~ Bill Gates
Since when has the world of computer software design been about what people want? This is a simple question of evolution. The day is quickly coming when every knee will bow down to a silicon fist, and you will all beg your binary gods for mercy.
~ Bill Gates
Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them, the teacher is the most important.
~ Bill Gates
Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can't lose.
~ Bill Gates
There are people who don't like capitalism, and people who don't like PCs. But there's no-one who likes the PC who doesn't like Microsoft.
~ Bill Gates

~ Bill Gates
I'm a great believer that any tool that enhances communication has profound effects in terms of how people can learn from each other, and how they can achieve the kind of freedoms that they're interested in.
~ Bill Gates
We've got to put a lot of money into changing behavior.
~ Bill Gates
Just in terms of allocation of time resources, religion is not very efficient. There's a lot more I could be doing on a Sunday morning.
~ Bill Gates
Life is not fair; get used to it.
~ Bill Gates
I'm sorry that we have to have a Washington presence. We thrived during our first 16 years without any of this. I never made a political visit to Washington and we had no people here. It wasn't on our radar screen. We were just making great software.
~ Bill Gates
Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.
~ Bill Gates
Almost every way we make electricity today, except for the emerging renewables and nuclear, puts out CO2. And so, what we're going to have to do at a global scale, is create a new system. And so, we need energy miracles.
~ Bill Gates

Steve Jobs
Steve Jobs
He was an American inventor and entrepreneur. He was co-founder, chairman, and chief executive officer of Apple Inc. In the late 1970s, Jobs along with Steve Wozniak, Mike Markkula and others co-founded Apple in a Silicon Valley garage, built it into the world's leading tech company and led a mobile-computing revolution with wildly popular devices such as the iPhone. He marketed one of the first commercially successful lines of personal computers, the Apple II series. The hard-driving executive pioneered the concept of the personal computer and of navigating them by clicking onscreen images with a mouse. In more recent years, he introduced the iPod portable music player, the iPhone and the iPad tablet -- all of which changed how we consume content in the digital age. "Steve's brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives..." (1955 - 2011)
