    You need a dev account before you can use beta iOS versions

    Why is that retarded? The rotation lock becomes software like all the other iOS 4 devices and this ADDS functionality that wasn't there before.

    I love the switch back to the mute button.. I almost never used the rotation lock, but the the mute is something I use all the time.

    AirPlay is really great, although not 100% smooth yet. Once you've switched to streaming audio from within the iPod app, audio streams from every app including games. I kind've doubt it will be this way in the final release, but for now, that's pretty cool.

    If I stream a movie in Netflix, I can stream the audio to my stereo. Remarkably, the sync is pretty tight and it all plays smoothly.

    So far I haven't gotten printing to work. I have a Brother wireless printer and it just doesn't see it at all. I tried sharing it wired on the network, but no joy there either. It appears that every app will have to be modified to use printing anyway. The only places printing seems to be available right now is in Safari, Mail, and Photos.

    it seams that only HP printers are supported by the AirPrint
    see: Apple’s AirPrint Wireless Printing for iPad, iPhone & iPod touch Coming to Users in November
    At least for now.

    It started out as a mute button too, and at the last second was changed to rotation inhibitor. Hopefully the same thing will happen here. Or - hey - providing the user the choice; but since when has that ever been Apple's prerogative?

    How does switching the buttons location for two functions add functionality?

    How have you never.. what.. I.. what is this I don't even. It is a very useful feature for when you're, say, reading a book or something. Sometimes there are very real situations when you don't want the orientation to change.

    Let me ask you all this: which makes more sense, having a mute button in the sound-related (iPod) panel with other sound related things, or moved to the side of the device? How does having a rotation inhibitor button in the iPod control panel make sense to you? Obviously none of you have ever taken an HCI class.

    what's funny is i can load jailbreakme website on the phone and my modem firmware does not changed from 1.59.00 so i tried the website it's just now downloading because safari was patched. I have an idea if we can make a small patch it can jailbreak 4.2 dev one.

    Um... right now a mute button does not exist... with the new firmware it makes the switch a mute button. This would be a NEW function for the iPad. Is this concept difficult for you to grasp?

    I can assure you it defy itely is worth losing the jb. For me at least, the iPad jb has just been a cool feature, not something I rely on like mywi on my i4.

    Not sure if I am happy about the mute button idea. I used it a many times for when watching shows/movies before I go to sleep.

    If this is a forsight on a possible 4.2 for the iphone then apple is playing their cards right because no dev team is going to release an iphone jailbreak when the ipad is showing that a new ios version is being developed. +1 to apple, they are out smarting the jailbreak community, if they keep this up there wont be jailbreaks anymore.

    To wrap things up if 4.2 comes out in november for ipad, the dev team will wait cause 4.2 beta may come out in november for the iphone.

    ~Tim

    If I have helped you then thank me.
