How about a snapshot of the current poll results and a poll reset?
We don't have the ability to do change the poll results. While I agree that the poll itself has pretty much outlived it's useful life a long time ago, the thread is still very popular and as long as people continue to discuss things in a civil manner, we're just going to let the thread continue as it is.
No "mortified" option in the poll answer choices?
They did. I knew about the lock orientation switch being changed to a mute about a month before the update was made official.
The apple stores gave this information out to those who inquired about the announced changes to iOS devices with the 4.2 update.
Details of the update were listed on Apple's website for over a month before the update was officially released.
Beta testers of the new update had reported all over the web, the changes included in the 4.2 update., most of which included mention of the switch's function being moved to a soft key.
Furthermore, the updates are user optional. Not automatic, and is installed ONLY after an end user agreement is submitted. Users should take a moment to familiarize themselves with any update, from any company, for any product before proceeding. Apple has their updates on their front main page, long before and long after it has been introduced.
It is part of the end user's agreement that Apple has the right to make changes to the operating system. You are agreeing to the terms upon installation and use.
If you are an adult, you are legally bound, as with any company's end user's agreement. And if you are an adult, you take responsibility for the choices you make. If you chose not to read the information posted on Apple's website; if you chose to ignore terms and conditions upon agreeing to them; and you chose not to gather any information about an update that is difficult to reverse before proceeding, then you don't have much more than your soapbox you're standing on. Even so. It's a function that is still there. I too have to agree at the ludicrousness of being horrified at this rather minor (because it really is if you think about it, and compare it to the other changes in the update) change. When someone writes that they now "hate" their iPad because of this change, it makes we question why that person got an iPad, or was even happy with it in the first place.. unless however, we've got responses from those who wish to create commotion about how this is an atrocity, and how our rights as iPad, end users mind you, have "been trampled on", and only those who recognize the ridiculousness of this type of reaction as folks who have pictures of Mr. Jobs on our Tshirts. Seriously. Those who don't fit into the category of camp creators, or trolls, would be either people pretending to be upset over the switch change, or genuinely upset. Those who are genuinely should take minute to reflect on our responsibilities as the consumers of a product or service, and not expect corporations and companies to hold our hands every step of the way. If anything, that has been one of the things I see written about Apple, not as a positive, but the contrary. Take responsibility and familiarize yourselves with a software update before you blindly accept the user's terms and conditions. If you one who has read this post and still are upset over the switch's function change, in terms that have been described by some or along the lines of being "mortified", further explanation of the preceding text probably won't change your opinion on the matter. Cheers!
Before you fall off that high purch, could I point out, we do not get to pick and choose what parts of the updates we as the poeple who paid all this money for something get to install or not, just because we wanted to update for other options does not mean everyone wanted "all" the changes that were inside that update!
If you wanted the update and the changes fine, but don't jump on people who did not want all of the update but needed some of the new features. Everyone on here can say what they want about the ipad being as they are the ones who spent the money to buy it, so if there is something they are not happy with then it is their God given right to complain about it, no matter who likes it or not, but stop telling us what we can and cannot complain about unless you would like to pay them all back the money they spent, then feel free to tell us all we have to love everything single thing abut the ipad!
Untill that happens, do not enter threads that you do not happen to agree with! simple as that, saves everyone a headache in the long run!
It's very very very simple.
If you don't like Apple's stance on not allowing changes to the user interface, go buy another product or jailbreak your iPad.
Sitting here complaining about it gets you about as close to a solution to your problem as twiddling your thumbs.
Ok, have fun finding a site on the internet with people nicer than this site. You'll have an easier time finding Atlantis though, so good luck.
I agree that using words like "mortified" is probably taking things a little too far.
However, since you mentioned being so happy with the new functionality of the switch let's try a hypothetical scenario here. Suppose when iOS 4.3 comes out, Apple decides to change the switch function back to orientation lock. Would that upset you at all seeing how you like the mute function better? That little bit of upset you would be feeling is the same way people feel that preferred the switch as an orientation lock. Personally, I don't have a huge problem either way. I did use the switch before, now I imagine it will never be used. Big deal, I am well past over it but sometimes it doesn't hurt to put yourself in other people's shoes before poking too much fun at them.
Is there a way that one can block a particularity caustic and argumentative user? I've absolutely had enough of their belligerence, and would love to completely block anything they have to say. Other forums have this functionality, but I haven't been able to find it here.
