    You can do light multitasking on the iPad on OS 3. This does not require any jailbreaking.

    First on you iPad in safari go to: http://energy981.com/Energy98_128.m3u

    Press the home button on your iPad and you are multitasking!

    You will still hear the music from energy98.

    Note some apps with sound will stop the music.

    The .m3u is probably being played by the iPod function, which is able to work in the background.

    It works for sure in Safari, I like to listen once in awhile to this type of music so thank you to the OP.

    Btw, I can't reproduce this in the Atomic Browser.

    Get an iPad for each application that you want to keep open.

    Apple apps have been able to run simultaneously since the iPhone was introduced.
