Bill gates & Steve Jobs street smart & no book smarts cause they both university drop-outs?
No they are book smart. Just self educated. Book smart means learning from books, doesn't matter where you did it.
Those two dropped out because there wasn't anything more the school could teach them. They were well ahead of the Professors.
How do I go about starting my own buisness like bill gates,steve jobs? 10 pts best answers?
First you have to consider your options - what kind of business do you want to start? Is there a market for this in your area? Then you need to create a business plan. Your business plan is probably the most important part of your business. It helps you develop goals, and it helps your achieve those goals! It's also going to be key to getting any funding. If you're going to a bank for a loan, or applying for grants, you're going to need a business plan.
Once you get a general idea of what you want to do then the best thing you can do is go to your bank and speak to a business specialist or a personal banker. Tell them your plans, and they can help you with your business plan - some banks even have fill in the blank business plan packages they give to their customers!
As an employee of TD Canada Trust I can assure you that your bank wants your business. At TD Canada Trust we have a great program called the Small Business Advisors, these are small business experts who help our customers with ALL of their business needs. If you aren't a TD Canada Trust customer then you should go to your bank and ask if this is a service available to you. If your bank has any concept of customer service they won't discriminate on age either, if you're young they're help you, if you're old they'll help you.
Who would make a better president Steve Jobs or Bill Gates, who would you vote for?
At least Bill is a philanthropist. He and his wife have set up the Bill Gates foundation for malaria research.
Steve Jobs hasn't really done much for society and he prefers to keep to himself. I'd vote for Gates anyday.
There are 2 types of inventions/breakthroughs in science and human knowledge.
The first is an inevitable breakthrough. For example - The telephone, the patent for which was given in practically at the same time by 2 different people while others were working on developing it and fell behind. It was just a matter of time until it'd get to that. Same goes for practically all inventions throughout human history - The human knowledge keeps advancing and builds one atop of the other - A person has a breakthrough, then many others follow it and develop something better or something completely unrelated based on the previous technology, idea or thought. For most inventions - It's just a matter of time.
The other type is unique extraordinary breakthroughs which have nothing to do with any previous knowledge or theory. An example would Einstein's theory of relativity which redefined the whole human knowledge of physics and the universe. To come up with something so extraordinary as the theory of relativity, it would certainly take a true strike of genius and completely unorthodox thought to achieve - Not to mention going against everything humanity knows as fact.
The inventions which Bill Gates and Steve Jobs introduced were inevitable. Computers were getting smaller and smaller, as well as more sophisticated. Same goes for software.
As for Bill and windows - Linux is based on Unix which was invented decades before Windows came to be so in the long run, without Bill - There might have even been a better operating system used by the masses. Also, Windows is based on Dos and Dos had nothing to do with Bill Gates - Except him buying it and reselling it for a higher price.
As for personal computers - There were many competitors to Steve Jobs' apple and Macintosh - Such as the TRS-80 or the Commodore PET. Many other PCs came even long before that.
Also, most of the technologies of Microsoft's products were actually bought from existing external companies, where as Steve simply takes a certain product market that already exists and designs a product to dominate that market.
All in all - Those 2 contributed A LOT to the world, but had they never existed, it would just be a matter of time until whatever their companies created would be created by others instead. As a mild believer in the butterfly theory, there's no doubt the world would look very different nowadays without Bill and Steve. The question is.. would it be worse?
I really don't know.
Why am I posting this then? Well it's because i think you'd do better picking a politician. Like Nixon and him buying dogs for children with campaign money. It's a lot easier (I think) to pick apart a politician's speech than another's speech. And you need to write 8-10 pages. There are plenty of good political orators out there. Thinking a person is a good orator does not mean that you necessarily have to agree with their politics. I've heard people talk about Hitler's good oratory skills as an explanation on how he was able to woo such an intelligent country and have it follow an evil agenda.
Just some advice.
Good luck with whatever you end up doing.
Why do so many people hate Bill Gates, but not Steve Jobs?
Many people are jealous of Bill Gates because he is the richest man in the world. The people that supposedly hate him probably have never even met him or even really know anything about him. Actually Bill Gates is a very generous man. The people that you have listed are leaders of the computer business and I doubt that they got where they are by being nerds or introverts.
