Last Wednesday, 19 January 2011, I purchased a 16 GB iPad (the wi-fi version) at a local Best Buy. I decided against the 3G version which is a nice luxury but most people I know agreed I didn't need it.
I ordered it online to be picked up at the store. We showered, dressed, ate breakfast and drove the 15 minutes to Marlborough to pick it up.
Upon arriving home, I took this photo. I hadn't even removed the shiny over wrap. The color of my kitchen granite counter top reflects a sepia tone to the box.
A friend of my daughter's, upon opening the box of his first computer, a laptop, called me and told me that he was enjoying just looking at the box.
So, here we are, enjoying this "the iPad box". A moment to remember.
