Die-hard Apple fans lined up Friday to get their hands on the new iPad, which went on sale at 8 a.m. this morning.

Apple's co-founder, Steve Wozniak, said there's nothing quite like coming out on opening day.
"We're going to do a lot less thinking in the future," he said. "The computer is going to think for us and it's going to get a lot better at thinking than we are."
