    In the multitasking demo for the iPad in the keynote there was the usual media controls when the multitasking bar was swiped to the left, but I was surprised to see that there was also the orientation lock button that's on other iDevices. Strange considering that the iPad already has a lock button on the side. Did anyone else see that in the demo for iOS 4.2? I'm just wondering what the use of that would be.

    I've seen someone on this forum claiming to have 4.2 beta installed on his iPad, and his screenshots showed a favorites icon where that rotation lock was. I didn't believe it at the time, but the screenshots were posted long before the first and the 4.2 that Steve Jobs demoed looked exactly the same. I'd say the favorites thing is likely if there's going to be anything at all.

    Well, it's a port from iPhone OS, so I'd say that's just leftover stuff.

    I think i saw those pics, too, but they really looked very FAKE. Its just a copy n paste job in photoshop...
    I watched the keynote again , to see if this was really an orientation lock button down there, and it was... but i think theyll change it, or at least i hope so, because this would be the silliest thing i could imagine...

    i like the physical switch to lock, but i think they will get rid of it in the 2nd gen ipad and just have the software version.

    I think it was just bad image doctoring now that I heard about how they messed up the iPod touch product image on their website.
