iCarols from the iBand

by Adam C. Engst

Sure, we all know you can play music on an iPhone or iPad, but this YouTube video [1] from the iBand, a group at the North Point Community Church outside of Atlanta, takes iOS device music to a whole new level, with an 8-member band playing a medley of Christmas carols entirely on iPads and iPhones. Thanks to reader Charles Reeves for the pointer!

Aside from the enjoyment of watching a bunch of guys in silly hats playing synthesized Christmas music on iPads, all I could think was that they really needed Hand-e-holders so they could rock around a bit more while playing without worrying about dropping their iPads (see “Palm Your iPad with a Hand-e-holder [2],” 29 October 2010).
