One Million Sold: It took Apple only 28 days to sell a million iPads. The company sold its millionth tablet the day the 3G iPad hit stores. An especially proud Steve Jobs notes "that's less than half of the 74 days it took to achieve this milestone with iPhone."

Twitter believes that "Tweets are the new quotes," which may be true as many news organizations are now using Twitter posts instead of phone calls or public statements to verify information. Twitter hopes that Tweets will soon be as easy and appropriate to post as YouTube videos.
