I can't believe i still can't set my orientation lock to landscape... Laying on your side in bed and keeping your phone landscape is impossible and I am very annoyed I can not lock it in ios5

I've said this before but .... It is a phone. Being able to watch movies in any orientation is a bonus.

So just because it's a "phone" we should deal with stupid oversights? I don't think so. Besides, do you really consider the iPhone a phone? It's a computer that has a built in phone.

The attached picture is a phone. Plus, I'm not talking about watching a movie on my phone, I'm talking about browsing the web, or composing mail.

The argument you bring forth as "logical" is completely absurd and it's like saying I should be happy with a model T ford when there are BMW M class cars out there.

But I guess every forum has its trolls who just like to argue for argument sake

Or how about Apple just fix something do simple?
You know, personally, I wouldn't spend hundreds of $$$ on something I didn't research first. I prefer to spend my cash on something that suits my needs.

Who hasn't researched something? I've been using Apple products since before you were born! (and much longer than 11 years ago as well!)

No wonder the active post count has dropped dramatically since I started coming here. So many rude users, what are you Apple's damage control co-opters?

Somehow I doubt that, seeing as I was alive before they existed, but thanks for thinking I'm so young.
