✴️ MY FIRST GENERATION APPLE iPAD FROM 2010! 📱 😳

WHAT'S UP STACKERS!


This thing just brings back tons of memories. I remembered it was like yesterday when Apple launched it's first iPad around April of 2010. 📆

I was always an "Apple Guy" ever since they came out with the original iPhone. Yeah, there are much better products out there that are way cheaper but "Apple" makes everything simple to use. 

Back then, the iPad was the hype and the talk of the town for months. Everyone wanted to get their hands on one, even me. 🤷🏼‍♂️

What was the cost for this? I don't even remember, but I think it was over $500 (crazy, it doesn't even work without wifi haha)!

I haven't use this iPad for years and wondered if it still worked! Too my surprise, it did! It just took an hour or so just to update the software and apps! 🤯 😩

However, once I put it on... It's freaking slow and pretty worthless. I was thinking of selling it online but they were only offering $25 it! WTF! 😅


So my plan is just to keep it... as a souvenir (maybe in 100 years, it can be an antique collectable worth thousands of dollars). Totally kidding!

As I'm writing this post, I did find a good use for it! It works well just for listening to music (Pandora) and that's probably it. 🎶

Technology changes fast these days... I won't even be surprised in about 20 years from now, we will all be wearing a virtual device and don't need phones anymore. Crazy Times!

Keep On STACKIN! 💞

Very true, I do not know what to do with my old iPad 😔

·

You can use it as an expensive radio like I do 😂

It prolly had 16 gigs of storage? The fact that it still works 8 years later is a testament to the quality of Apple products.

·

Yeah, only 16 GB! Funny! 😂

That was alot back in the day. Most mp3 players only had 1 or 2 gb.

Technology makes giant strides. Always evolving very fast. The puppy in the picture is yours?

I think your pretty safe to buy whatever you bought in the last 2-3 years there has not really been any advancements in speeds anymore. DDR4 and 3.2Ghz and your set for a long while. They seem to have hit make speeds on CPUs and I don't see DDR ram getting all that much faster then what it is now. All yous ee now is more and more cores.

That’s true, the new macs books and new iPhone are coming out in a few months... it’s probably a little better but people won’t know any difference. lol

your post reminds me of a video i was watching the other day on the history of Blockbuster and it detailed how the first DVD players were going for $500-700+...now you can get yourself one for $20-30 at Walmart👍also feels like just yesterday that Apple introduced their ipods😂

·

Blockbuster was my spots for a long time in the 90’s. 😂... I still have my 500 CD players somewhere on the garage I think lol

I know, right? 😅

After being in cold storage for some 5 years, I took out my first iPad about a month ago and it worked just fine too!

·

Hilarious! These last a lifetime lol

Apple keeps things simple and easy and their ecosystem of connected apps and devices makes life easy ;)

·

Way simple! I still like to use my windows computer still at times 😀

If it's a first edition you should keep it. They can become more expensive in the future as a collectors item. Same like with an old nintendo 64. People remember those from their childhood and want one.

·

It’s fine, I had several and like to give back to the peeps lol
