    well for one you can choose what the side switch does....which should calm the masses of people that were ready to riot over the useless orientation lock.

    That probably was the most important feature of the entire device...I was seriously ready to smash the thing into little bits because the switch I barely remember was there got changed to another useless feature!

    Apple has added some additional gestures for the iPad. For example, you can now bring up the multitasking bar by simply swiping the screen upward, or swipe left and right to jump from app to app. Here it is as detailed by Apple:

    Test Multi-Touch Gestures for iPad
    This beta release contains a preview of new Multi-Touch gestures for iPad. You can use four or five fingers to pinch to the Home Screen; swipe up to reveal the multitasking bar; and swipe left or right between apps. We are providing this preview before releasing them to the public to understand how these gestures work with your apps. Test them and give us your feedback on the Apple Developer Forums

    These are really interesting, as they would allow Apple to get rid of the home button in the next iPad. Unfortunately, for some reason, I haven’t been able to figure out how to activate these. We’ll be investigating.

    Sounds exactly like the Blackberry Playbook. If it is, that is awesome.

    That the switch isnt the orientation lock was not a problem for me.
    Never used that switch, not even for mute.

    You can mute if you push quick the low button.
    And the orientation is just fine for me, never switched into horizontal/vertical if it wasnt needed.

    Pretty cool that they added the similar multi-touch gestures that are on the MacBook Pro.

    Hope the wifi drop issue is fixed. I for one am tired of having to reconnect to my network.

    Useless for you perhaps. If Apple is indeed giving users the choice to use the switch as an orientation lock then it speaks to the fact the a large number of users out there do not share your opinion. If this comes to fruition then I applaud Apple for listening to their users.

    I saw it on line Don't really know how it works, I think you need to be a registered developer or something.

    I'll let the "pros" make sure it works first.

    Can anyone check and see if the camera connection kit is now working with any device other than an idevice? Meaning, can you plug in a point and shoot camera and transfer photos?
