    The Mute Button mutes system generated sounds

    Like key sounds when pressing individual keys. But it won't mute sound if you are playing a video or music. I presume the logic is that you don't need another button to mute music or video when you can just press the pause button if you want to stop the sound.

    It also mutes email and calendar alerts which is handy for me since I use my iPad in meetings at work.

    Agree with you, Ben

    One of Mr. Job's dumbest moves in 2010 was to exchange the function of the valued rotation lock switch to a sort of mute located right next to, guess what, the real mute/volume keys.
