Comparing Personal Brands: Bill Gates vs. Steve Jobs

Posted By Anthony Garcia On January 9, 2008 @ 6:00 pm In Branding,humor | No Comments

Well earlier this week Bill Gates said goodbye to his daily grind at Microsoft. He also gave his last speech at CES.

In case you missed his farewell tribute, enjoy…

But will Gates actually stop making headlines? Probably not so much.

Gates still retains his title as one of the richest dudes in the world and, of course, he will now focus on making the world a better place [1]. It’s enough for even the biggest Mac fanboy to have a few warm fuzzies for Gates [2].

Everyone raves about the charisma of Apple’s Steve Jobs, but can you picture Jobs poking fun at himself like this? Where will we find Bill Gates next?

It’s been a good week for personal brands & authenticity; first Hillary sobs [3], then Gates makes Jobs looks a little like a statue [4].

Who woulda thunk it?
