Robert Cringely interviewed Steve Jobs for a 1995 film "Revenge of the Nerds." And until now, all but 10 minutes of the interview was believed to be lost.

Steve Jobs – The Lost Interview

The interview is wide ranging across a variety of subjects like the famous Blue Box that Steve Wozniak and Jobs built early in their careers, the future of the personal computer and Jobs’ visions for his company NeXT, which he was running at the time.

    At Mark Zuckerberg's young age, I think he navigated a more complex business than the one Bill Gates did at the same age. Zuckerberg has a lot to learn about public companies, SEC, shareholders and government relations, but he has time to learn it.

    Just beware that the Tesla car in todays electrical grid is not what Tesla would have wanted. We would first need the real Tesla energy grid to benefit financially from an electric car. Tesla's innovations in electrical energy was to provide the globe with free electricity derived from the Earth energy field, until the elitist Morgan and Rockefeller family destroyed Tesla financially to protect their control over the energy industry. They were obviously threatened by the idea of free energy. Electric cars as produced by the fascist state we live in are really not much better then gas cars. The cost of repairs and replacement of batteries are so massively inflated that a cost benefit is nonexistent. Plus, just the cost of electricity to fuel the car has no guarantee of cost stability when our electrical energy is still produced by the earth resources which are all controlled monopolistically. If money was removed from the gas industry, it would simply make up for it by increasing profits from the electrical industry.

    I am a PC guy, but if you answer the question, "Who's the savviest tech entrepreneur?" I have to say Steve Jobs. A smaller company than Microsoft, Apple is what it is because of Jobs and he learned from his mistake of trusting Bill Gates in their early days, probably why Apple is so proprietary today. Every time Jobs stepped away from Apple, the company slipped a little and it always seemed to be Jobs who stepped back in and saved the day.

    If you've ever been to an Apple store for some sort of repair, then you know how impressive it is. That being said, if you've ever had to go to an Apple store ( nearest one to me is near 50 miles away), then you know what an utter pain in the ass such proprietary equipment really is to the average user. The argument over Apple vs PC will likely continue for the foreseeable future and though I'm a PC guy, gotta give this one to Steve Jobs (R.I.P.). For those who aren't thinking straight, compare iPod and Zune. Enough said.

    Bill Gates projects an image of a benign philanthropist using his billions via his (tax exempt) Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, to tackle diseases, solve food shortages in Africa and alleviate poverty. Gates has a less public agenda of his philanthropy—population reduction, otherwise known as eugenics.

    The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has made millions of dollars each year from companies blamed for many of the same social and health problems the Foundation seeks to address.

    The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has purchased 500,000 shares of Monsanto stock. Monsanto is the world’s largest producer of genetically modified food, which has been tied to numerous health ailments such as sterility, infant mortality, spontaneous abortion in livestock, organ failure, and now their flagship Bt corn strain is starting to fail.

    Eugenicists of the past have always labeled themselves as philanthropists. Bill Gates’ philanthropic work is no different. You’ll discover that during a speech on vaccines, climate change, and global poverty, he said, “The world today has 6.8 billion people… that’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now, if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.”

Now, if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.”

    Spoken like a true eugenicist! He wants to kill 15% of the global population through vaccines. His Foundation has already been responsible for forced vaccinations at gunpoint, so I suppose this isn’t any new surprise. You can find the reports of Gates Foundation vaccines causing mass sterilization of populations where it is implemented.

    When statements and actions such as those are coupled with large investments in chemical companies that create genetically altered food, it paints a very worrisome picture that involves population control.

    If vaccines are to be used to reduce world population, they obviously need to be accepted by the majority of the people. Otherwise the population reduction effort wouldn’t be very effective.

    And in order for them to be accepted by the majority of the people, they obviously can’t just kill people outright. If everybody started dropping dead within 24 hours of receiving the flu shot, the danger of vaccines would become obvious rather quickly and the vaccines would be recalled.

    Thus, if vaccines are to be used as an effective population reduction effort, there are really only three ways in which they might theoretically be “effective” from the point of view of those who wish to reduce world population:

    #1) They might kill people slowly in a way that’s unnoticeable, taking effect over perhaps 10 – 30 years by accelerating degenerative diseases.

    #2) They might reduce fertility and therefore dramatically lower birth rates around the world, thereby reducing the world population over successive generations. This “soft kill” method might seem more acceptable to scientists who want to see the world population fall but don’t quite have the stomach to outright kill people with conventional medicine. There is already evidence that vaccines may promote miscarriages.

    #3) They might increase the death rate from a future pandemic. Theoretically, widespread vaccination efforts could be followed by a deliberate release of a highly virulent flu strain with a high fatality rate. This “bioweapon” approach could kill millions of people whose immune systems have been weakened by previous vaccine injections.

    The Gates Foundation’s investment portfolio now includes 500,000 new shares of Monsanto stock with an estimated worth of $23.1 million purchased in the second quarter of 2010 (see the filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission). This marks a substantial increase from its previous holdings, valued at just over $360,000 (see the Foundation’s 2008 990 Form).

    “The Foundation’s direct investment in Monsanto is problematic on two primary levels,” said Dr. Phil Bereano, University of Washington Professor Emeritus and recognized expert on genetic engineering. “First, Monsanto has a history of blatant disregard for the interests and well-being of small farmers around the world, as well as an appalling environmental track record. The strong connections to Monsanto cast serious doubt on the Foundation’s heavy funding of agricultural development in Africa and purported goal of alleviating poverty and hunger among small-scale farmers. Second, this investment represents an enormous conflict of interests.”

    Gates’ interest in inducing population reduction among black and other minority populations is not new unfortunately. Since the 1920’s the Rockefeller Foundation had funded the eugenics research in Germany through the Kaiser-Wilhelm Institutes in Berlin and Munich, including well into the Third Reich. They praised the forced sterilization of people by Hirtler Germany, and the Nazi ideas on race “purity.” It was John D. Rockefeller III, a life-long advocate of eugenics, who used his “tax free” foundation money to initiate the population reduction neo-Malthusian movement through his private Population Council in New York beginning in the 1950’s.

    The idea of using vaccines to covertly reduce births in the Third World is also not new. Bill Gates’ good friend, David Rockefeller and his Rockefeller Foundation were involved as early as 1972 in a major project together with WHO and others to perfect another “new vaccine.”

    The results of the WHO-Rockefeller project were put into mass application on human guinea pigs in the early 1990’s. The WHO oversaw massive vaccination campaigns against tetanus in Nicaragua, Mexico and the Philippines. Comite Pro Vida de Mexico, a Roman Catholic lay organization, became suspicious of the motives behind the WHO program and decided to test numerous vials of the vaccine and found them to contain human Chorionic Gonadotrophin, or hCG. That was a curious component for a vaccine designed to protect people against lock-jaw arising from infection with rusty nail wounds or other contact with certain bacteria found in soil. The tetanus disease was indeed, also rather rare. It was also curious because hCG was a natural hormone needed to maintain a pregnancy. However, when combined with a tetanus toxoid carrier, it stimulated formation of antibodies against hCG, rendering a woman incapable of maintaining a pregnancy, a form of concealed abortion. Similar reports of vaccines laced with hCG hormones came from the Philippines and Nicaragua.

    Zuckerberg? That's hilarious. He's rich as hell, no doubt, and came up with something that really took off. But it's one thing and it will go the way of myspace. Bill Gates? why, because he stole form Jobs and made a crappier, cheaper, unstable, befuddled business PC. Windows is still like an early 1990's beta version of an attempt to be like the Mac OS.
    Ellison and Musk, both great entrepreneur that have changed things, but still not a Steve Jobs. Meg Whitman comes right behind them. A smart, savvy, entrepreneurial lady.
    But Steve Jobs' visionary and ground breaking products truly changed the world. And he just kept pulling new tricks out of his hat.

    However, they all have a huge impact on the internet and the economy we see today, and with even one person removed, we'd practically live in a different world.

    Bill Gates made computer programs easier to use, and made it easier for software designers to make ever-simpler programs.

    Steve Jobs made computer programs and hardware that made people's eyes glaze over.

    Mark Zuckerberg created a social network that, in its heyday, served as a model for practically the entire social networking "industry".

    Larry Ellison created a company whose products (e.g. Java) help web designers shape the Internet's virtual roadways to their wills.

    Elon Musk's company (Tesla, if anyone asks) is practically leading the automotive industry out of the gasoline era into an era of powerful machines that require less fuel.

    Meg Whitman's company serves as a model for entrepreneurs looking to dominate the online shopping and auctioning industries.

    Zilch, you left off the best one... Marc Andreessen

    He’s not a household name like Gates, Jobs, or Zuckerberg. His face isn’t known to millions. But during his remarkable 20-year career, no one has done more than Marc Andreessen to change the way we communicate. At 22, he invented Mosaic, the first graphical web browser—an innovation that is perhaps more responsible than any other for popularizing the Internet and bringing it into hundreds of millions of homes. He cofounded Netscape and took it public in a massive (for that time) stock offering that helped catalyze the dotcom boom. He started Loudcloud, a visionary service to bring cloud computing to business clients. And more recently, as a venture capitalist, he has backed an astonishing array of web 2.0 companies, from Twitter to Skype to Groupon to Instagram to Airbnb. read the rest here: http://www.wired.com/business...

    Here's Charlie Rose's interview with Andreessen from Wednesday, June 27, 2012
    This is a "Must See" for those that want to see the future...

    Gates spent millions to buy other peoples' applications only to bury them thus getting rid of his competition. He would buy them and incorporate parts into inferior Microsoft products (research the Access DB program for an example). Add to that the draconian OEM licensing deals with computer manufacturers and you've got one wily marketer.

    I would have to say Steve Jobs WAS. Jobs was the master of taking credit for the work of others. He was also very adept and sneaking in as an "innovator" on tech that had already been invented. He didn't invent the PC, he didn't invent the smartphone, he didn't invent the MP3 player. Did his company improve on these things? Sure.
