Apple sold a million iPads on the first day.

No wonder it took me all day to order one. Apple's web site processed one million purchases on the day the new iPad was announced.

What's especially impressive about this number is that these were pre-orders -- a million people ordered the device without ever having seen it.

No other company has been able to achive this, and Apple's industrial design chief Jonathan Ive tells what they're doing wrong: They try to do something new, which is the wrong goal, he says.
