iPad 2 with Garage Band adds the accelerometer to the piano keyboard, allowing different dynamics based on the force you hit the keys. Wow!

Anyone know an illustrator that has done an “infinite canvas” comic? I’m seeking one to use in demo of our upcoming iPad app Griddler.

Wed Mar 09 00:45:29 +0000 2011

Made good progress today on Griddler, our iPad content authoring tool that I’ll be showing at SXSW next week.

Thanks, I think I will add @psd’s ‘web is an agreement’ illustration to the griddler showcase.
