Nice. I downloaded Morphwiz two days ago and I really enjoy playing with it. Endless noodling! Big smile

I find it hard to play those virtual keyboards though ... I keep hitting the wrong keys. Morphwiz is great in that regard, since you often slide into the notes and sort of play by ear (you just stop at the right note). Great fun in any case.

My only problem: I got the iPad in December, and the iPad 2 will soon be released. Normally I don't fret about always having the newest technology, but if the iPad 2 really comes with a retina display (2048x1536), I might be tempted ...

I'm not arguing over the qualities of the iPad, Mike, just providing a possible explanation to the lack of replies in the thread (which you mentioned).

^ Sure, that makes sense. Still, even when someone doesn't have an iPad the videos are interesting. I must say, when I first saw Rudess playing solos with his iPhone on DT tours, my first thought was "how cool is that" rather than "must - get - iPhone". LOL

Here's the follow-up to the video above - more jamming.

The famous British artist David Hockney (one of the greatest contemporary artists) uses the iPad to paint and has already opened an exhibition of "iPad paintings": http://www.npr.org/2010/12/07/131854461/in-paris-a-display-from-hockney-s-pixelated-period

Nice article, thanks. I certainly didn't expect to see still life painted by Hockney, though!

And for my turn I have this:
