Steve Jobs, Bill Gates to make rare joint appearance

Apple CEO Steve Jobs and Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates will make a rare joint appearance at The Wall Street Journal’s D: All Things Digital conference this year. According to show organizers, they will jointly discuss “the history and future of the digital revolution in an unrehearsed, unscripted, onstage conversation.” Both executives have made multiple appearances at the conference, but this will be their first joint session at D. Jobs will also appear on his own in a separate segment at D to discuss the latest developments at Apple. The conference, which is sold out, will take place May 29-31 near San Diego, California.

Cause we know how well THAT has gone over before…. Anybody remember Gates crashing the Apple keynote about a decade ago?

I’d like to see that. Jobs hates gates for “stealing the look of the apple system and then putting out a cheap knockoff”

Yeah, there’s no bad blood there.

I predict Bill Gates will leave the stage in tears when he “comes to a sad realization”. ;)

This should be a cable/sat pay-per-view event.

apple paid for the right to use and improve the xerox look.

Man, this is going to be good. This is like UFC for computer-people. This is going to be like those Apple commercials. I hope Gates and Jobs start swearing at each other. This is like God and Satan squaring off on a smaller scale. Jobs, of course, being God.
