I wish I had ever been that excited about anything
Behold Han Ziwen, the first person to buy an iPad in China. Well, that’s not true, actually. Odds are over tens of thousands of people in China already had iPads for months via other (more nefarious) channels, but let’s not tell Han that. After all, he went through the trouble of making up a “I Buy iPad #1” T-Shirt and everything.
Actually, it looks like he bought two iPads, so hopefully the guy behind him didn’t waste his money on a “I buy iPad #2” shirt.
Man I wish I was capable of that kind of emotion. This is a far cry from my iPad launch day experience. I was one of 4 people in line at my local Best Buy, I was the first one in, got my iPad, said “No” to the crappy case, and quietly left the store. Although when I got home I DID make my kids carry me around the living room on their shoulders for five minutes, but then again, I do that most days when I get home. It helps keep the “Daddy is God” myth going.
