See this story where Goatberg is quoted speaking at some conference in Israel. Money quote from Walt: “Microsoft chairman Bill Gates is a genius and a very tough businessman. Apple CEO Steve Jobs is both tough and a genius in some ways.” (Italics mine.) Oy vey. So Gates is a flat-out genius, but I’m just a partial genius. Is that it? Or maybe this just got messed up in the translation. FWIW, can’t you just see old Walt over there pontificating and holding court and giving his little mini evaluations of all the big tech CEOs? Like he’s the wise old sage of the Valley and it’s his job to sit in judgment of us. Walt, when you get back from Israel we have to sit down for a chat.
