The invention of the computer tablet is up in the air as Bill Gates of Microsoft and Steve Jobs of Apple, along with their research and development teams could both claim to have invented the tablet. The iPad tablet however was developed by Steve Jobs and his team at Apple. The idea for this is traced back to an infamous rivalry between Gates and Job when Gates was bragging about the new Microsoft tablet and Jobs reportedly said, “…this dinner was like the tenth time he talked to me about it, and I was so sick of it that I came home and said, “F**k this, let’s show him what a tablet can really be.”
