Gates Says Steve Jobs Cast ‘Spells’ to Keep Apple From Dying


Apple’s Steve Jobs was singular in his ability to take a company “on a path to die” and turn it into the world’s most valuable- in part by “casting spells”, billionaire Bill Gates said. 
Gates spoke of Jobs, the Apple Inc. co-founder and chief executive officer who died of pancreatic cancer in 2011, in a segment of leadership to be broadcast Sunday on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS”. 
“I was like a minor wizard because he would be casting spells, and I would see people mesmerised, but because I’m a minor wizard, the spells don’t work on me,” said Gates, The world’s second richest person, according to a transcript provided by the network.
