Oprah Winfrey has named the iPad as her Number 1 Favorite Thing Ever.
As part of the celebrations in this final year of her long-running daytime hit series, she revealed her list of ‘ultimate favorite things’ and the iPad came in at the top of the list. Oprah talked about how it may be wrong to be in love with a thing, but said that she knew from her very first moments with it that it had stolen her heart.
She also had this to say about it:
Words cannot describe what I feel for this magnificent, magnificent device. I really think it’s the best invention of the century so far.
Oprah has been a huge fan of the iPad since the very beginning, has given iPads to all of her staff on O Magazine, and has her own recently launched iPad edition of the magazine as well. She also gave an iPad to every member of the audience at the ultimate favorite things show taping. You can check out the YouTube video of her unveiling the iPad as her favorite thing ever HERE.
Generally, when Oprah recommends a product then there are a zillion or so new sales of that product. So if we thought the iPad was already a big consumer hit, it’s probably about to see another explosion in sales numbers in the US.
