It seems like we’ve been using iPads forever now, but the greatest tablet computer ever made is still an incredibly young piece of gadgetry. In fact, it’s celebrating its third birthday today.
What other three year old do you know who has changed the world like the iPad has?
A ton of tech luminaries and pundits thought the iPad wouldn’t even make it this far, but boy, were they wrong. Over the the last three years the iPad has become a cultural phenomenon.
Here are 25 ways showing how the iPad has taken over the world in just three years.

Prince Charles totes loves his.
Even Obama runs his empire from his iPad.
And Spike Lee uses his to take pics of Obama.
Hell, if it’s good enough for Oprah, it’s good enough for everyone, right?
