Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and Apple chief executive Steve Jobs have appeared on stage together for the first time in more than two decades. Billed as a public "conversation" between two giants of the computer industry, the event at the All Things Digital conference, hugely anticipated by technology buffs, was seen as a long overdue opportunity for two of the greatest pioneers in the industry to go head to head.
But would they re-live old feuds or shuffle uncomfortably in their seats if touchy subjects cropped up? It was not to be. The question and answer session at the D: All Things Digital conference, turned out to be more of a love-in between old pals. The pair reminisced about how their respective businesses had grown over the years.
