    You know what's awesome?

    Taking away something useful to put a mute switch right next to the mute button we already had! (Volume down always muted WAY too fast)

    ...and on top of that, it doesn't work in most applications/webpages!

    Poor Apple.

    Who needs to mute anyway. I am glad that I can actually find that button now when I want to lock the screen. I was always feeling around all sides and I would accidently turn it off.

    It was annoying. I'm likin it now.

    I am sorry you don't though. Want some really good coffee?

    Actually I think the mute button is used to mute system sounds (like incoming emails, sms and calls (for iPhone)) while the the volume button is for user designated sounsd (like a movie/song).

    This way you can mute the system sounds (with the button) but continue watching a movie in full volume.

    Makes me wonder, what used to happen in the past? ding dong sounds while watching a movie? Huh?

    Me neither! Somehow I feel I'd have to focus more to watch a movie on the ipad than I'd do in the living room with the big tv. I like to melt into a movie not concentrate on it...

    I also think that the iPad would also distract me to go back to the web, the same way it does when I read on it.

    Then there's the distraction of holding the iPad still when I switch position in my seat without loosing the beat of the movie.

    Deja vu.

    OP, I agree. Broken switch is broken and redundant.

    Multitasking

    Its great that it has multitasking now, but they should have opted for a tap function to start it instead of using the home button which is now gonna be pretty stressed.
    Wonder when its gonna give up.

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

    Great streaming movies when lying in bed.........you realize what the cinema is missing. Comfort and volume control.

    I'm not lovin the mute/rotation lock either, but as Sweetpoisin said the old way of feeling around the corners for the switch also wasn't ideal.
