    Check out the link below. I never knew that. They were on a side by side tv interview several years ago and asked what the future of computing would be like in 5 years. Bill gates is the one who actually described iPad type technology and Steve jobs was the one talkin more about pc's and desktops n such. Steve got the idea from bill gates but Steve is the one who pioneered the idea. Kudos to both or the iPad may have never existed. So we owe partial thnkx to Bill gates for the iPad. The richest man in the world always has his hands in the latest tech or has something to do with it. I guess that's why Bill has been the richest man in the Whole world for like decades now..check link below

    Steve said that the iPhone was developed from work done for a tablet. Think it was on last years AllthingsD conf.. He was probably trying to keep off the subject :)
    Don't think the Newton dream ever died.

    Steve even mentions the term "post PC" in the video and gets flamed for it by the interviewer. Interviewer said editors write n complain about that term. U should see the look on Steve face..lmao

    Just a quick side note Bill Gates is no longer the worlds richest man. Since giving up some of his fortune to the Bill and Linda Gates Foundation he is now only worth $49 billion. Had he not given up one third of his fortune he would be worth about $88 billion. A Mexican named Carlos Slim is the leader at $60 billion.

    Sounds like perfect execution of mis-direction. No one will know for sure, but maybe Jobs' misdirection about the real plans for the future of computing kept the competition at bay. Lie about what you're really planning until it becomes a reality.

    No one knows for sure.

    The development on the iPad was started well before this interview. I am sure that Gates had Jobs worried that they might have something in the wings, but you know Steve would be tight lipped about any subject that is going to be a future happening.
