Yeah, the iPad was designed very different than Apple's other products (maybe not the iPhone) in a way that they have the same configuration (beyond the HDD or flash memory). So there's no option to customize.
I am glad Cryptoman told you about the app, and that you found it useful. As soon as WildKeys is available on the App Store I will let you know. The developers are Finnish, so I will probably know before it's out. :D
Garage Band is great, I use it for recording interviews, and love it. I don't use it for anything musical, though, but yes, it has to be of great help for you. What is the mini piano app that you use?
I believe your music director is right, there is plenty for a musician to do, and discover with both a Mac and an iPad. Yes, at this point you'd better wait for the iPad 3.
This might sound a little crazy, but when I wake up in the middle of the night (quite often), and can't sleep, I go to the App Store, and check out the new apps. :) I always find something new. Next time I will see what's new for musicians, and tell you.
That may simply put individual tablet manufactrer towards different consumers. If that's the direction consumerization would probably heading to as regards tablet PC, i think market may look healthy and industry may eventually unencumbered off of patent legal fights.

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
