Consumers in Europe and Asia went crazy last week when Apple’s new i-Pad (below) became available for sale. You might recall that in the US. the i-Pad set an unexpected record of more than 1 million that beat the initial sales of i-Phones.

Here’s the story, published Monday, about the doubling of  iPad sales:

Meanwhile, if you are a classical music fan — or a classical musician, that matter – you might be interested to hear that a Madison-based high-tech firm, Musicnotes.com, has developed an application or app for downloading sheet music of all kinds to your IPad.

Now that could be convenient, no?

I don’t have details such as what music will be available (I assume things in the public domain) or how much it will costs and when it will be ready (it sounds like now).

But it sure sounds promising, no?

Hers is a link to a story about it:

I’d like to hear from classical fans about the iPad and its usefulness, advantages or disadvantages, especially it pertains to books and classical music.

And about using other Apple or hi-tech devices for classical music?

Are there apps you recommend?

The Ear wants to hear.
