Malcolm Gladwell Said No One Will Ever Remember Steve Jobs

Malcolm Gladwell, the best selling author of Outliers, The Tipping Point, and Blink, has come out with some unusual statements about Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft (MSFT) and Steve Jobs, founder of Apple (AAPL).

He said that fifty years from now, 'no one will even remember what Microsoft is' and no one will remember who Steve Jobs is. 'People will have forgotten Steve Jobs' were his exact words. You can see it for yourself in an interview with him that took place in Canada. It was an extremely long interview; the following is from Part 3 which covers his Steve Jobs opinion. If you don't want to wade through a lot of the commentary, you can move to 9 minutes 40 seconds to hear what he says about Bill Gates, and 10 minutes 35 seconds to hear about Steve Jobs.
