Stuff of Interest: The iPad Mute Switch
There has been much hullabaloo about Apple’s decision to change the hardware switch on the iPad from an orientation lock to a mute switch with the iOS 4.2 update, making the behavior match iPhone behavior.Most of the scuttlebutt on the internet seems to be against this change. Personally, I love…
It should be a control in the iPad settings. A toggle for this switch, where the user could choose between screen orientation or muting. I personally like the screen orientation because I use my iPad in the real world for work and have one application that I use almost exclusively that needs to remain locked. Sure, I can lock it the new way now, but I just got the iPad recently and am used to (and like using) the hardware switch.
