60 Minutes Overtime: Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Charlie Rose

A video glimpse into a 30-year relationship that is the definition of frenemies.

Jobs and GatesFORTUNE -- Steve Jobs was pretty sick in Nov. 2010 when CBS (CBS) debuted its 60 Minutes app on the iPad, so it's hard to know how involved he was in the negotiations that got Apple (AAPL) the exclusive. But he probably would have got a kick out of what the venerable TV newsmagazine managed to do with the outtakes of Charlie Rose's interview with Microsoft's (MSFT) Bill Gates that aired Sunday night on 60 Minutes and is now perpetually available -- with extras -- on the iPad and iPhone.

In the full 13-minute segment, Rose spent only 30 seconds on Gates' relationship with Jobs, capturing a rare emotional moment when Gates, recalling their last meeting in the summer of 2011, nearly teared up.

But drawing from the footage on the cutting room floor, old interviews with Rose and the pair's joint appearance at AllThingsD in 2007, 60 Minutes Overtime producer Ann Silvio put together a 5:30 piece about a 30-year relationship that is practically the definition of "frenemies."

The best bits:

  • Gates faintly praising Jobs for what he was able to accomplish given as "little engineering background as he had."
  • Jobs' line from AllThingsD about the world being a richer place because "Bill realized his goal was not to be the richest guy in the cemetery."
  • The story Gates tells at the end about when Jobs, in failing health, canceled a dinner at the last minute. "It he wants to know why," Jobs told Gates' secretary, "just tell him I'm an asshole."

The Overtime segment is available free on 60 Minutes' website. To view the full Bill Gates segment, you need the $4.99 60 Minutes app.
