Bill Gates on Steve Jobs: 'We grew up together'

In '60 Minutes' interview, Bill Gates discusses his philanthropy, takes time to reflect on life and legacy of Steve Jobs

Last night's episode of "60 Minutes" featured a segment by Charlie Rose about Microsoft's Bill Gates. The piece, embedded below, primarily focuses on Gates' philanthropic work, but near the end, Gates gets a bit emotional when discussing the late Steve Jobs and the last conversation the two had before Jobs' death.

In a CBS Web video, Rose himself is interviewed about the segment and discusses his previous interviews with Gates, as well as Jobs, relating the growth of the two titans and charting their relationship as friends and rivals over the years and relaying the tale of a dinner that Gates and Jobs were supposed to have that Jobs canceled at the last minute in hilarious fashion.
