    When you hold the ipad side wides who else presses the home button by mestake because its in the way?. I do it all the time when in apps and i think the home button should have been in one of the corners where you dont hold the ipad. Or is it just me?.

    Sorry wrong forum. Ment to have put it in General.

    Why are you holding it so tightly? You don't need to squeeze it...this has neve happened to me.

    Me neither. When holding it in landscape mode, I kind of rest the bottom corners on my palms while supporting the backs with my fingers. To hit the home button, I have to stretch my thumb waaaayyyyy up.

    I've often pressed the home button and accidentally dumped out of apps when holding it with the button to my left. Now I turn it so the control is on my right.

    I haven't had a problem with the home button. I'm more a "hit the N when I meant to hit the Space Bar" and "P when I meant Erase" guy. :)

    I don't think I've ever bumped the home button, but I have it the off button once or twice.

    Never hit the home button. My problem I'd when scrolling and I hit something I didn't want to go to.
