The World’s First Marriage Proposal via the iPad

by on April 12th, 2010

The iPad is capable of many things: email, surfing the web, reading books, playing games…oh, and engagements too. Yep, you knew this was coming. A TechCrunch reader named Zach used his iPad to add some ‘mad game’ to his relationship skills and proposed to his girlfriend–who said yes:

Hi TechCrunch,

I’m a huge fan of your blog and read it every day, and I thought you might be interested in this. This weekend I brought my girlfriend to a local ice cream shop where we had our first date. I also brought along my iPad, since I wanted to “field test” it, as I told her. We sat outside on the same bench we had 2 1/2 years ago, and I asked her to put on earphones. I then handed her the iPad and played a slideshow with music and photos of the two of us together, with a message at the end: “will you marry me?” I got down on one knee and proposed, and fortunately she said yes. Maybe Steve Jobs was right–the iPad is magical!

Thanks for providing me with years of news and entertainment.

Congrats to Zach and his new fiancee. You’re now internet famous! And in other news, an iPhoneinCanada.ca reader tried the same proposal with his Zune, but failed miserably. Thanks Microsoft!
