Apple hasn’t said one way or another, but as a dyed in the wool iPad supporter, I’m very curious whether the holiday season just passed was a good one for the platform. About a week ago I posted this Twitter poll (my first) and managed to get nine hundred responses in twenty-four hours.
Did you receive an iPad as a gift for the holidays?
