Steve Jobs Thought Microsoft’s Bill Gates “Shamelessly Ripped Off Other People’s Ideas”



The weird revelations coming from the AP’s bizarrely “purchased” early copy of Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs bio continue. Here’s another one: he hates Bill Gates!

According to a direct quote from Isaacson in his upcoming Steve Jobs bio, Microsoft’s Bill Gates is “basically unimaginative and has never invented anything… he just shamelessly ripped off other people’s ideas.”

Yowch. But it gets worse. He also said that “He’d be a broader guy if he had dropped acid once or gone off to an ashram when he was younger.”

Walter Isaacson’s bio of Steve Jobs will be on sale Monday.
