FORTUNE -- 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."

Is there another company that is loathed with as much passion as Apple?
FORTUNE -- After more than five years writing an Apple (AAPL) blog, I think I've heard 'em all, from fanboy and lemming to sheeple and iCrap. What is it about this company that attracts such passionate detractors?
I've started a list. Feel free to add.
Apple is arrogant. "Apple designs Macs, the best personal computers in the world..."*
Apple is closed. MORE
Its six-part debt issue was immediately oversubscribed.
FORTUNE -- Steve Jobs didn't like to borrow money. For the nearly 15 years he ran Apple (AAPL) as CEO -- interim or otherwise -- the company was debt-free and, for the last half-dozen years, cash rich.
But Jobs loved superlatives and nice round numbers with lots of zeroes, and there was much he might have liked about Apple's first venture into the capital markets MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Apr 30, 2013 3:42 PM ET

FORTUNE -- That Apple (AAPL) owes a lot to Alan Kay -- everybody's favorite computing pioneer -- is an understatement.
It was Steve Jobs' visit to Kay's lab at Xerox PARC that led to the Lisa, the Mac and all that followed. Kay's aphorism that "people who are really serious about software should make their own hardware" -- MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Apr 3, 2013 6:49 AM ET
Adobe's Kevin Lynch comes to Apple with deep roots and a lot of baggage
FORTUNE -- The news that Apple (AAPL) has hired Kevin Lynch, formerly Adobe's (ADBE) chief technology officer, to be its new vice president of technology, has sparked something of a civil war among Apple partisans.
Wired's Steve Levy called Lynch a "star."
Daring Fireball's John Gruber called him a "bad hire" and a "bozo."

FORTUNE -- Steve Jobs, the past master of high-tech event marketing, was famous for treating the launch of Apple's (AAPL) new products as if they were Broadway openings, although lately Apple has been moving its events to smaller and smaller venues.

FORTUNE -- In a three-hour appearance on CNBC's Squawk Box Monday morning, Berkshire Hathaway's (BRKA) Warren Buffett addressed two burning issues in the minds of Apple (AAPL) investors: Apple's depressed stock price and what to do with the $137 billion in cash burning a hole in David Einhorn's pocket.
