Bill Gates: Steve Jobs' work was 'phenomenal' but Apple may need Surface-like device

Ashleigh Allsopp | July 6, 2012
Microsoft founder Bill Gates has described Steve Jobs' work as "phenomenal," but believes that Apple may need to build a hybrid, Surface-like device in the future to meet users needs.

In June, author Malcolm Gladwell said that Bill Gates will be remembered longer than the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. When Rose mentioned these comments to Gates in his interview, Microsoft's founder replied: "I don't think anybody does the work they do based on how they think they'll be remembered. Steve Jobs did phenomenal work, both when I partnered with him and when Microsoft competed with him and that deserves to be remembered."

Last week, Gates was also quoted as saying that using tablets in education is "never going to work".
