Stupid iPhone question:
you know how when you turn the phone on its side the screen turns with it, horizontally? Is there any way to disable that shit? I hate it!
there is no option to turn it off, unless your phone is jailbroken. (which is not illegal now! http://news.cnet.com/8301-31021_3-20011 ... eStories.0
I did find this little blurb on the interwebs and not sure it will help or not.
"The other day I was lying on my side, trying to read a web page on the iPhone. I turned the iPhone 90° clockwise, but it obligingly re-rotated the text 90° counter-clockwise, leaving me again out of sync. I grumbled something about the irritation of being outmaneuvered by a handheld gadget. Amy’s brilliant suggestion: rotate it another 90° CCW. Since the iPhone doesn’t offer 180° rotation, this left the text rotated 90° in alighnment with my head.
He’s right: Safari rotates the first 90 degrees, but not the second, leaving Safari’s window in the perfect position for reading in bed. A simple tip, but one that will immeasurably improve my night-time NewsGator browsing."
