New IMN Podcast and Sheet Music on the iPad

The new IMN podcast is up - download it or listen at the site or on WFYI HD2, Thursdays at 4pm and 10pm.

My new iPad holds quite a bit of sheet music in PDF form, and so far it's been a good resource for such storage. The resolution is high enough to be useful, and the screen is big enough to show the entire page in legible form. It's still a little slower on the large files, and normal PDF files aren't convenient to scan through (Real Book fans, take note). But it's awfully convenient for storage, a quick touch changes the page, and it's hundreds of dollars cheaper than the MusicPad Pro (a device designed just for sheet music, although it does come with a foot pedal for changing the page). I wouldn't be surprised to see this showing up on tons of music stands soon.
