With iOS 4.2, the iPad’s hardware switch changed from locking screen orientation in place to muting the volume. Terrible idea, but Gizmodo’s not taking it without a fight. The site encourages protesters to write “Hey #Apple, change the #iPad switch back to screen lock!” on Facebook, Twitter or the comments section of this blog post. I doubt that Apple cares to appease Gizmodo after the iPhone 4 prototype debacle, but it’s a nice thought.
