Professor Roger Bourland featured in iPad commercial

July 29th, 2010 · 5 Comments

If you have seen the commercials released immediately after the launch of the iPad, you have seen (very briefly) a pair of hands playing the piano. Those hands belong to Music Department Chair, Professor Roger Bourland.

    also, the iPad features allow you to read an ebook almost as naturally, minus the paper texture. Apparently, iPad is not only a tablet PC, its full of apps, eBook reader that could enhance your reading experience additional to music lessons experience.

    That’s pretty cool. I hadn’t watched the commercial before this entry but now I did and it’s just amazing. Plus, now that I’ve seen i see this reference on the ipad and other copies like on tablet androids in pages and so on.
    Some might say the technology is the devil but for me it makes us do incredible things like that, or even unimaginable ones.
    Still, it’s incredible what you can do with just a tablet, or in this case an iPad. Good one!
