#TBT – A look back at the interviews, debates and documentaries about some of the most influential and important figures behind today’s #DigitalRevolution.

Digital Revolution Innovators and Pioneers

Steve Jobs and Bill Gates

Steve Jobs – Apple’s iconic CEO and builder of one of the most valuable companies on the planet with a market cap today near a half trillion dollars. Under Steve, Apple launched the iMac, the iPod, the iPhone, the iPad, iTunes and Apple retail stores would redefine commerce.

Bill Gates – The founder of Microsoft has changed the world through technology and charity. He brought personal computing to the masses. Windows was affordable, device agnostic, and welcomed outside partners. It still has over 80 percent market share. Gates also saved Apple with a $150 million infusion from Microsoft in 1997 when a returning Steve Jobs needed cash. There might be no iPod, iPhone,or iPad if Gates hadn’t stepped in.
