Apple continues its "Your Verse" campaign for the iPad (the original featured a voiceover from the late Robin Williams) with two new spots focusing on different iPad owners and how they use the device.

Over in Beijing the members of electropop group Yaoband are shown using the device to record samples, capture beats and perform their music, which is inspired by life in China. Meanwhile, in the second ad set in Detroit, Jason Hall, founder of the Slow Roll city bike ride, is shown using his iPad to co-ordinate the event. Both spots focus on getting out and about and doing creative things with your iPad (and the new settings extend the world of cutting-edge Apple users beyond California-dwelling hipster types.)
