Happy 2nd Birthday, iPad
Today marks the two year anniversary that techno-Buddha demigod Steve Jobs floated across a stage in San Francisco at Apple’s annual conference and told everybody, “Hey, you didn’t know you wanted something called an iPad, but you do – and I’m your pusherman.” And just like that, iPad was the device that launched a thousand-times-a thousand Ooooohs and thus commenced the age of the tablet. In fact, here’s the birth video of iPad as we all originally saw it:
The crew at Pingdom put together a graph that illustrates how sales of iPad unites have steadily climbed in the past two years. The new need for an iPad, it would appear, has spread like a contagious addiction.
Expect to see those bar graphs shoot up as the subsequent financial quarters of 2012 are added on. But enough of the future, let us take today to commemorate the anniversary of the iPad infecting our imaginations forever and take a stroll down memory lane so as to reflect upon some of the adventurous moments that iPads have seen over the past two years, as told by WebProNews.

I love how all of the greatest hits of the iPad are people either abusing other people abusing the iPad itself. In that case, look forward to the greater adventures of iPad with the imminent arrival of the iPad 3 later this year.
