Apple came out with the very first iPad five years ago today.
Then, Quartz’s Dan Frommer ran out to the Apple Store, eager with anticipation.
“So I got on the train, went into Manhattan, and got one!” Frommer wrote on Business Insider back then.
“It was surprisingly quick. From the back of the line to paying only took 15 minutes.” He documented the whole iPad buying experience on Business Insider.
Wow, that is a beautiful building. Thinking about how I stood here for FOUR HOURS for an iPhone a few summers ago.
