    if Jobs wanted to give away money he can do it himself naman. he doesnt have to give money to Gates' foundation

    if Jobs gives money to the foundation pera na ng foundation yun

    kaya si Gates bumaba ang net worth kasi he gave billions of dollars to the foundation

    kanya kanya diskarte yan eh

    it's really good PR when you say you're gonna give away your wealth. that's what Buffett did

    but the devil is in the details

    Buffett didnt give Gates' foundation cash

    Buffett pledged the foundation approx. 10 million Berkshire Hathaway B shares (staggered, yearly)

    ang condition ni Buffett dapat control ni Bill and Melinda ang foundation

    if for some reason they no longer control the foundation, Buffett's contribution stops

    that means Buffett trusts only Gates. nobody else

    meron din sila foundations

    know what they do? they fund right-wing causes

    then there's George Soros (2011 net worth $22B)

    he funds left-wing causes

    Steve Jobs thanking Bill Gates publicly for his financial help. That's a BIG THING for the egotistical Apple founder.

    Of course, unsecured loans in an emergency situation for a Dying company would require certain conditions. That's SMART BUSINESS.

    Apple had run out of cash, had ugly products, and poor sales in 1997. Which meant only one thing...Bankruptcy.

    Bill & Melinda Gates and Buffett are trustees of the foundation. they control the money
    And no more tax on it even if it earns due to funding in non-profit orgs. Anyway, they have control on who to endow it to but they have to follow certain protocols to avoid using it as an excuse for transferring inheritance which is subject to tax regulations.

    What Job's think of Microsoft...

    Mr. Jobs castigated competitors, particularly Microsoft. Bill Gates’s company, which dwarfed Apple in power and wealth during the 1980s and 1990s, was not even described as second rate; it was deemed third-rate. Worse, it was not even trying.

    “The only problem with Microsoft is they just have no taste,” Mr. Jobs said in a typical broadside. “They have absolutely no taste. And I don’t mean that in a small way, I mean that in a big way, in the sense that they don’t think of original ideas, and they don’t bring much culture into their products.”
    As far as he's concerned, Windows stole/copied from the Mac OS.
