Before saving the world’s poor from malaria, Bill Gates saved Apple’s ass from going under.
#6. Bill Gates Saves Apple from Bankruptcy
Apple wasn’t always the giant it is today — in fact, in 1997 the company was on its last legs. Co-founder Steve Jobs had been out of the company for the past 12 years, and business had been dropping steadily since then (the aforementioned “Microsoft keeps stealing our shit” shit didn’t help). In desperation, Apple allowed Jobs to rejoin the company, but he knew they were going to need a little more help than he could provide to save it from bankruptcy.
Fortunately, Jobs convinced an old pal to come to the rescue. His name? Bill “I Invented Motherfucking Windows” Gates.
That Climber/Sherpa rumble on Mt. Everest seems shocking until you understand the place is a garbage-strewn Mt. Shakedown. #CrackedClassic
