Let's talk about silly, shall we?
Taking an iPad back because it rotates at 45 degrees rather than 60 or 80 or 90 just seems silly.
Yes, I agree to a degree of silliness, however, there have been some posts from those who allegedly feel rather strongly about this.. to the point of hating their entire iPad supposedly. I personally find it hard to believe, but if someone is bothered by an ipad's premature orientation rotation, I wouldn't think it silly at all to take it back and exchange it for one that rotates at a (the proper) larger 45'ish+ degree angle.
What i do find silly is for someone to take the time to complain to those who can't do anything about it, and post that that they hate
their iPad because of a switch's updated function or that it rotates sooner than they'd like.. Why not just take it back to the store.. or get it switched for an older OS that has the old switch function(while you still can).. or exchange the "defective" iPad for one that rotates closer to full rotation, while it is still under warranty.
Silly yes. Because some of the responses in this thread are just that. The solutions are available. Only a fool would just sit there, complain about it, and do nothing. That is, of course if it were an actual complaint. If a switch's function, or the set rotation angle, is creating that
much grief, do something about it! I get what Superbike is saying about some of the ridiculous comments. Some, mind you. Most others have merit, and are legitimate opinions, and commentary. If my iPad rotated it's orientation sooner than 45 degrees, when I know others rotate at a larger angle, you bet I would share some of the frustration from those who say that the slightest twitch rotates the screen (which is simply hard to believe to be honest), but if it were that, you better believe I'd take my iPad to an Apple store for an exchange. I wouldn't find that silly at all. Id like to see just one video of one rotating as easily as some have described here though. Not saying that it couldn't happen, but if someone reading this actually has one that sensitive, do yourself (and the rest of us) a favor, and take to where you bought it or an Apple store and get one that rotates properly already. Otherwise, the belly aching is useless and only makes one sound like a trolling fanboy. There is no reason not to choose a solution, and I'm not suggesting even a jailbreak solution mind you, but legitimate solutions to the supposed problem that "consumes" a few selected commenters. What is silly is how long this thread is, and my post adding to it's length!
