    Has anyone done or thought of inverting the iPod touch screen.

    Since the headphone jack is at the bottom, I would like to rotate the iPOT so the jack is at the top, but everything functions normally. When viewing photos, and you rotate the iPOT 180 degrees, the photo flips accordingly (just the photo not the controls). So this means the iPOT know it was inverted 180 degree.

    I would not mind if this was a permanent solution also. Any ideas, or should I just shut up!

    Inverting the screen would mean the home button would be at the top, which to me seems pretty awkward to me. I do agree that the headphone jack should always be at the top, but I feel that it is just a small sacrafice that I am happy to live with.

    u actually agree besides the headphone jack on the bottom makes sense, when u pull it out of your pocket you dont need to flip it around or anything its right side up, good thinking on apples part imho

    ????????

    I think some folks are missing the point of my question.

    I am talking about the screen rotating depending on the way it is held. If you hold it with the headphones jack down, the screen is in the correct orientation. If you flip it with the headphone jack up, it filps for the correct orientation.

    Coverflow flips if turned with the headphone jack either left of right, why wouldn't the other screens flip if the jack was on top or bottom. It just seems like a logic way to do it. Either way everyone is happy
