    Can someone make an app or plugin for safari that can limit the accelerometer so that the screen image won't rotate when you put it on its side, because I like to lie down in bed and surf the web but if I turn on my side it rotates and its sideways for me.
    Thanks in advance

    haha, i thought i was the only one with this problem. it would be great if someone could so something like this, though it would probably be pretty hacky.

    yea I just found that out last night too. But I still want it because I can't stay on my left side forever. I like to rotate.

    Haha, I do the same thing. That upside down thing doesn't make sense. Well for me but I'm not that smart.

    You can't do this in safari, only in picture viewer. Safari ignores it if you put it upside-down.

    Just to clarify what Bennoo tried to explain with his picture, you turn the iPod to the left, let it go into landscape, then turn it left again to enjoy the iPod in non rotational beauty for your lazy bedtime surfing
