Jobs and Gates trade jests at rare joint appearance.

“PC guy is great, he’s got a big heart,” the chief of Apple Inc. said…

People let me tell you ’bout my best friend,
He’s a warm hearted person who’ll love me till the end.

Jobs, 52, and Gates, 51, reminisced about the industry and old partnerships. The tone was jovial, even sentimental, but Jobs did get in a few good-natured digs.

People let me tell you bout my best friend,
He’s a one boy cuddly toy, my up, my down, my pride and joy.

At one point, Gates said employees working on Microsoft’s Zune portable media player admired Apple for creating the market for such devices with its hugely successful iPod line.

“And we love them because they’re all customers!” countered Jobs.

People let me tell you ’bout him he’s so much fun
Whether we’re talkin’ man to man or whether we’re talking son to son.

“We’ve kept our marriage secret for over a decade now,” Jobs said, to roars of laughter.

Cause he’s my best friend.
Yes he’s my best friend.

    I bow to the Macalope’s mastery of theme songs from obscure 70’s sitcoms. You are truly a magical beast.

  • Bergamot:

    I’m sorry, I meant to post this one instead.

    Stupid no-youtube-at-work…

  • Well. At MY blog, we just make fun of it all. (sniff) Those indusssssstry people are such piggies.

    Now. To business. If Bill and Steve aren’t REALLY married, are they living in sin? Are they mingling processors and operating systems without the blessings of the almighty Rik?

    Also, is “Hot Girl on Girl action going to be available on the new digital bar table? If it is, some girls are going to have to find other girls. The guys will be preoccupied.

    Can I eat the rest of your salad?

  • There was supposed to be a quotation mark after the second Girl.

    Is anal retentive hyphenated?

  • Hey Mac-a-lope,

    Are you going to go on Macbreak weekly? Are you already on there?

    We all would like to know.

  • This is exactly what I expected to find out after reading the title BFF. Thanks for informative article
