If you're left-handed and you were worried that you wouldn't be able to wear the fancy new Apple Watch, fear not. One of the benefits of its digital UI is that it's reportedly easy to change the orientation of it in Settings as needed, which should also come in handy if you ever need to sell the thing.
Apple giveth, but sometimes Apple taketh away -- case in point, the iPad’s orientation lock switch, which is being converted back to the mute switch it was originally intended to be with the forthcoming iOS 4.2. But what if we like our current hardware-based orientation lock switch? Tough bananas, says Steve Jobs.
A new uncovered patent shows that Apple is currently working on a new dock connector design that will let you device with multiple orientations (i.e. portrait or landscape). The device appears to be using an inductive connection for both charging and syncing the device. This new design could allow for device case designs that don't interfere with Apple's dock design.
