    It wasn't that clear really as he didn't linger on the actual process of accessing the multitasking bar - probably a bit of apple assumed knowledge. In keeping with apples form though, I'd expect it to work in the same way.

    I agree. I also will say that he wasn't demo'ing a product that is finished and ready for release. I was surprised he even got into 4.2 at all, so was at least happy to hear about it. Don't recall them ever demo'ing an iOS release that comes after another release that isn't out yet.

    Go back and watch it again, he did the open pandora, play Jack johnson, reveal multitask bar, go to email, then go to an email link ti safari, then opened up the multitask bar again and scold all the way left and used the playback controls to stop pandora.

    And it should be pointed out that that is NOT possible right now without jailbreaking. iPod will play in background but not Pandora. Streaming apps is one of the reasons I want multitasking.

    This is true
    Well... this kinda sorta isn't entirely true. One of my favorite streaming audio sites in PocketTunes. Some of their sources have the option to play in the background through the QuickTime player in Safari... which is about the only reason to keep it around on the iPad.
