Re: iPad; Your thoughts about it
I think the potential for music apps is really cool. Even if music publishers started publishing text books with built in video examples/audio examples. that would be really cool.
Also I could see some apps that would turn it into a control surface for a recording program, or even a customizable abelton live controller.
It would also be cool to have a setlist-metronome app with all the songs and tempos listed and you can start the click track with a touch of the song title.
I would really like to see a good comic book reader for this too.
I already have an iphone and a macbook pro so I don't really have a need for this, but I will wait and see how it is in person, and see what new stuff will come as far as apps.
