Apple’s tablet computer, the original iPad, went on sale two years ago today. Saturday, April 3rd, 2010. Back then, you could preorder for delivery or wait in line at an Apple store. I preordered my first iPad, hoping it would arrive on Saturday. I say hoping, because at the time we lived off the beaten path. Did I get my first iPad that day? Here’s the answer:
That’s me and Mr. Yancey from UPS. One of the first email messages I sent from my iPad went to him, with a copy of the picture. He told me as far as he knew, mine was the only iPad he’d deliver that day. (When I said “off the beaten path” I meant way off.) How about you? Were you anxiously awaiting delivery? Standing on line at an Apple store?
