Fresh from his Reddit “Ask Me Anything,” Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates appeared on CBS This Morning. In his interview with Charlie Rose, Gates takes Microsoft to task for not being more innovative on mobile, calling the strategy taken “clearly a mistake.”

Gates made comments during his chat about tech and philanthropy such as, “There’s a lot of things like cellphones where we didn’t get out in the lead early. We didn’t miss cellphones, but the way that we went about it didn’t allow us to get the leadership.” Watch the interview below.[more]

The segment’s description: “Bill Gates remains chairman of Microsoft, but he stepped back from his day-to-day role nearly five years ago, and now, with his wife Melinda, runs the world’s largest charity. Gates spoke to Charlie Rose recently about how he measures his success.”
