I am a long-time Apple product user, including Mac, iPhone and iPad. I've just gotten the new iPad to replace my first generation iPad (I did not get the iPad 2). It's generally terrific and I can appreciate the processor enhancement and 4G and i can see the screen resolution enhancement easily. I do have one question, however. My original iPad had a switch on the side that would allow me to lock the screen in either a horizontal or vertical position. Is there a way to do it on the third generation iPad?
