Heroes (live) and iPad background trick

"Heroes" always worked well live.

I found this while trying an iPad trick (found on iPad Today): It's not just the iPod app which can play sound in the background on an iPad (or I guess, iPhone). If you're playing a video and want to just hear the audio, the audio goes away if you switch directly to another app. But if you go to the Home page, and then double-click to get the task-strip, swipe left to get the audio-interface, you can see the last app (browser or youtube app) is associated with it, and you click play, and the audio of the video then plays while you play Angry Avians or work on the The Great American Novel (or Albanian or Swedish or whatever).
