    Am I missing something?

    So, I downloaded 4.2.1 about an hour ago. Pretty stoked to try it out. First, I can't figure out the multitasking. I read where others say there is a bar that you use for multitasking. Either I don't know how to bring it up or I just don't have it. Second, the mute switch doesn't mute anything, just flashes a speaker with a line through it symbol. And third, where is the button that is supposed to lock the orientation? Now that the switch is for mute, I have no way to lock it.

    Getting kinda' frustrated here. I'm sure that someone will come along and say the answer is simple, and I hope that is the case, but for now I'm wondering if something is wrong.

    Do a search on YouTube for iOS 4.2 Preview.

    There are several videos there and around the Web that will answer all of your questions.

    Double tap the Home button

    I am sure there will be an iOS 4.2.2 sometime in the near future to fix this!

    Once you are in the multi-tasking bar, slide your finger to the right where you will see the iPod controls and the screen orientation lock.

    Strange that they let the mute switch bug slip through.

    Anyone remember the days where Apple stood for QUALITY? LOL!!!

    I never give up. Snideness and rudeness of any sort WILL be returned in kind.

    It appears the mute switch works for apps and games but not for iPod and Videos. Doesn't matter to me at all though either way. The best mute switch on the iPad is turning the volume button to zero. Work perfectly every time!

    I find it interesting that you can now tell how many web sites are open now.
