Last night’s 60 Minutes gave a solid block of screen time to Microsoft founder Bill Gates, with a focus on his efforts to tackle preventable diseases through the Gates Foundation. The show looked at how the Foundation is using the ethos of a technology company to meet humanitarian challenges, such as its recent plumbing-free toilet competition to improve sanitation around the world, and the development of a thermos that can keep 200 vaccines cool for 50 days using a single block of ice. Separately, Gates also spoke about the late Steve Jobs and how the two men effectively “grew up together” as rivals. 60 Minutes interviewer Charlie Rose noted that Gates will “long be remembered” for his philanthropy, whereas Jobs “did not have time to do that.” There are two excerpts from the show after the break, but we can’t guarantee how well they’ll work on mobile devices so you may want to go straight to the source links below.
