    But it still has one. It is just, now, a soft button with a tap of the home button twice.

    Don't you think that it is much easier? I could never remember which side that button was on!

    Otterbox and screen orientation switch

    I like having the orientation switch onscreen now. It was annoying to get to the external switch using the otterbox case. The switch was nice though before I put on the case.

    Well, I got my switch back as it was initially intented with that thingy NoMute from Cydia. Great. So there still is a choice, even if it has hiccups...

    Didn't really use the switch all that much, so not much difference for me either way, although I do prefer the way it currently is, with the orientation lock as a soft key.. So I guess that puts my vote down as a "like it as a mute button"

    Whenever I wanted to mute the volume anyways, I'd just hold down the vol down button.

    Bring it on back!

    I just yesterday updated my iPad and was mortified the orientation lock is gone. One of the main reasons I bought the IPad was to read ebooks and I do most of my reading in bed. I can no longer read in bed unless I learn to read sideways! Can no longer watch videos lying in bed either. This is very BAD! This just majorly changes the way I use my iPad and I am not happy. It should at least be an option.

    NO. :mad: You're seriously trying to sell going from up/down to double-click/swipe/touch/single-click as easier?

    Btw, this was the topic of the Letter from the Editor in the January 2011 Mac|Life.

    It is really not that funny, and considered to be a major problem by many people. For me its a complete deal breaker, which is why I am still on iOS 3.2 (at least until an untethered JB is out).
