Friday afternoon, I went to Alderwood Mall to get a gander at the line for the iPad2. Here are some faces (all taken with permission). I was struck by how many people already had an iPad. (When I asked, I was told the old device was being shared with family members or friends.)

The folks who were first in line (a bunch of young guys) were from Vancouver BC and had been in line since before 5 am; Apple opened the doors at 5 pm. An Apple employee told me later Friday night (about 8 pm) that half of those in line had been turned away.

    I’m not surprised that so many people in line for the iPad2 already had the original iPad since it’s so addictive. I can use my employee subscription to DISH Network to watch TV, live and recorded, on the iPad anywhere I have internet access. The iPad has so many uses and apps, why wouldn’t someone want the newer version?
