Can you spare a dollar or two billion for the lesser off?

Bill Gates or Steve Jobs? Who is changing the world more for the better? Some people believe Bill Gates and Microsoft are the Spawn of Satan, while others praise him for his philanthropy.

One might not give like the other, but one definitely is much more Zen-like.

Whats This? Bill Gates isn't the richest man in the world anymore. Poor Bill. First his company might be split, now he's only worth $50.75 billion.
