Great Music Ed Quotes from the iPad 2 Introduction

Regarding Garage Band for iPad, $4.99, available March 11th:

“I’m blown away with this stuff, you know.  Playing your own instruments, or using the smart instruments, anyone can make music now.  In something that’s this thick  (8.8mm) and weighs 1.3 pounds. It’s unbelievable.  So, Garage Band for iPad.  Great set of features.  Again, this is no toy.  This is something that you can really use for real work.  This is something that I cannot tell you how many hours teenagers are going to spend making music with this and teaching themselves about music with this.”

And about the relationship between technology and the arts (liberal arts, humanities):

“So, I’ve said this before, and I thought it was worth repeating.  It’s in Apple’s DNA that technology alone is not enough. That it’s technology married with liberal arts, married with the humanities, that yields us the result that makes our hearts sing.  And, nowhere is that more true than in these post-PC devices.”
