Lock the Screen Orientation on the iPad
You can lock the screen orientation on the iPad from rotating when the device is shifted by hitting the Screen Rotation Lock button on the side of the device, located above the volume controls.
This is a handy iPad feature and I wish something similar was available on the iPod Touch and iPhone, anytime I use the thing lying down it’s rotating all over the place making it practically inusable. Thankfully the iPad gets it right!
