In Apple's iPad 2 announcement yesterday, they finally decided to allow users the option to use the Switch to either Mute the iPad, or enable Rotation Lock.
But this is ridiculous. The Switch should never have been used to mute the iPad and there's a simple reason why. Press the decrease volume switch on your iPad for slightly more than a second. Notice what happens? It automatically jumps to mute. For me, this is the fastest way to mute the iPad since it can sometimes be difficult to grab the switch with my iPad case on.
Ah well. At least I now have the option to not do something stupid.
