Rare photo of Steve Jobs and Bill Gates

Check out this rare photo of Steve Jobs and Bill Gates discussing god knows what at Jobs’ Palo Alto home in 1991.  Both Jobs and Gates were 36 at the time the photo was taken.  Jobs, at the time, had already been forced out of Apple years earlier and was currently working at NeXT, which would eventually be sold to Apple some years later.  Gates, meanwhile, was already a billionaire who would go on to rule the 90’s with various releases of Microsoft Windows.

Who would have thought, then, that 18 years later Jobs would be back at the helm of Apple and Gates would no longer be the CEO of Microsoft.  Crazy.

    Very cool indeed. I also wonder what they were talking about. It’s amazing to me how much their dressing style says about their personalities and their views on product design…

    Agreed, Paul. It was the very first thing I noticed. This photo pretty much says it all.
