    1. A manual screen brightness on the side and
    2. Speakers on each side of the iPad

    I really can't see how these things got through testing. As the iPad is awesome to read things from, going into settings to adjust brightness is just sooo annoying. If they're in Gen 2, I'll be so annoyed.

    Also getting us to pay for word processing software etc is a bit cheeky considering it's sold as a productivity tool also.

    Sort it out Jobs! Otherwise congrats on a (mostly) awesome product.

    SBSettings on a jailbroken iPad makes changing the bightness easy. But that's just one more set of buttons to accidentally touch on the side. I'm glad it's software controlled.

    Name another device besides a computer monitor that adjusts brightness based off of a hardware button.

    Auto brightness works OK for me....or I pot it up to full when I'm watching video before I start the stream.

    You have a brightness command in iBooks also.

    I miss the fact it doesn't have a USB and we don't have a wifi printer at home.

    Most laptops, in fact on a Mac it is a single button, you don't even have to press a function key.

    I've found opening iBooks to be the quickest way to adjust the brightness, and though I wouldn't want hardware buttons, just having the brightness available in video apps would solve all of my problems.

    Can't really argue with those.... Sort of like on the iPhone a wish there was a WIFI switch because I leave it off most of the time for battery life, but then have to go through all those steps to turn it on when I do need it....... actually that is not such a big problem anymore since I use the iPad instead of the iPhone for web now.....

    True I guess I wasn't thinking about laptops. That being said, any laptop I've owned required the function key....never seen one with a dedicated hardware button for it.

    I should have said what mobile device, as in pocket PC, cell phone, slate, etc.
