    They'd better fcking include this for older generations. I'm not fussed about multitasking, but I want me some orientation lock.

    What exactly is this "Orientation Lock?"
    Correct me if i'm wrong. But off the top of my head, is it like the "Sleep" button?

    Stops the screen rotation. It'll keep the screen in portrait even if you change its position.

    It is so that when you are using Safari while in bed, for example, you can set the Orientation Lock so that if you decide to put the iPod on an angle to read it better, you can without Safari switching to landscape mode.

    Oh my god. Seriously I was just wondering this last night. On myspace. I would lay on my side and it kept going to Landscape! D:< Niceee! Can't wait for this!
