At the time, many joked that the iPad was a stupid idea because it basically looked like a larger version of the iPhone. I'm guessing they've sold enough at this point to justify it. Still one of the most popular tablets on the market.

Take me back to April 3, 2010

Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

The date is April 3, 2010, and it's a Saturday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Aries. People are currently enjoying their weekend.

The summer of 2010 is drawing closer, and temperatures have started to rise. In America, the song "Rude Boy" by Rihanna is at the top of the singles charts, while "Telephone" by Lady GaGa ft Beyonce is the number-one song in the UK. Barack Obama is the President of the United States, and the movie How to Train Your Dragon is at the top of the box office.

Gordon Brown is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. On television, people are watching popular shows such as "Prison Break", "The Big Bang Theory", "Real Housewives of New York City", and "Big Fat Gypsy Weddings". Video rental stores such as Blockbuster are continuing to close their doors at the moment. Sadly, it seems as though they will be unable to compete with online streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu.

It's 2010, so the music charts are being dominated by artists such as Kesha, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Eminem and Bruno Mars. An Old Spice advertisement called "The Man Your Man Could Smell Like", starring Isaiah Mustafa, is extremely popular at the moment. Internet users are repeating the slang phrase, "Come at me, bro."

French DJ David Guetta has released a new single called "Memories", featuring rapper Kid Cudi. Puerto Rican singer Ricky Martin has come out and announced that he is gay. Monster Garage host Jesse James has publicly apologized to his actress wife Sandra Bullock for being unfaithful to her. His publicist has also announced that James will be checking into a rehabilitation facility in the hope of solving his personal issues and saving his marriage.

Wrestling fans are in mourning following reports that Chris Kanyon has committed suicide. In technology, a new tablet computer called the iPad has recently been released by Apple. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Paul Gray, Gary Coleman, Dennis Hopper, and Rue McClanahan would all still be alive.

People are playing video games such as "Mafia Wars", "FIFA 10", "Borderlands", and "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "SpongeBob SquarePants", "Postcards from Buster", "The Suite Life on Deck", and "Glee". Children are playing with toys such as the Xbox 360, Roboraptor, Girl Gourmet Cupcake Maker, and the KidiZoom Camera.
