Hiya,I was originally impressed with, but now rather fed up with Mail on my iPad spotting words that look like dates or times and offering to turn them into iCal events by displaying them as blue underlined links. In some emails I get large portions of the text are proposed days or dates and it makes navigating the text of the email a bit tricky in case I trigger iCal.Ive looked in the Settings panel for Mail and Calendars but dont see anything that turns this feature off. Is there such a setting somewhere? I really really hope so...Cheers,Owen iMac 24" 2.4GHz Mac OS X (10.6.6)...|turn-event-auto-detect-ipad

As often as not people are going to be searching for proper names of people, streets, businesses, etc. On the iPad we are more likely to be using a keyboard -- typing the term quickly and hitting return.I am continually finding myself at a useless results page because the spell check corrected my mistake for me in the split-second between finishing typing and pressing return.I understand the usefulness of this feature globally.There should be a way to disable it just in search fields, where it more often slows us down than helps us. iPad...|turn-auto-correct-search-fields-ipad

Over the course of the last day, my iPad has stopped rotating when moved from upright to landscape.The screen lock is not on and I have tried turning the lock on/off, restarting, and also resetting.I also tried resetting the iPad settings but without success.I seem to be getting the undo typing message more often as well (and especially when I turn it right/left to try and get the screen to cooperate).This is bumming me out and I cant find any other settings for it or apps to test whether its a hardware or software issue.Help me! iPad iPhone OS 3.1.2...|screen-rotate-ipad

Okay, I bought my wife an iPad for Christmas and setup her email on the iPad and it worked good for a while but now when she tries to view her emails the body of the email is invisible (only white) the content is there because I can copy and past it. While messing with the email I rotated the iPad and magically it became visible and stays visible until I tap on another email and it turned invisible again until I rotate the iPad again. I know it still works but kind of a pain to have to keep rotating the iPad to view every email. iPad Model #MB292LL iOS 4 OS Version 4.2.1...|mail-content-visible-rotate-ipad

There are a couple other posts about this, but one of them was fixed by rebooting and the other was where someone had the side switch set to lock orientation.I have tried every combination of switch setting (mute/orientation lock) and rebooting but nothing works. It appears to be a problem with the accelerometer. I downloaded the labyrinth game to test it out and the ball just sits in the corner. No amount of shaking will move it.Anybody else seeing this problem? iPad 2 iOS 4 iPad 2, rotation, orientation, portrait mode, acceleromete...|broken-accelerometer-ipad-2-rotate-stuck-portrait-mode

I have not idea why apple changed the switch function. It is very annoying if you are moving around with the unit and watching as the screen flops around. I think 99% of the users do not place an iPad in a fixed position when operating it, we tend in lay it down or sit and relax while using the unit. anow we have to ensure that we keep the unit in a fixed position when using it or face the flip flopping effect. For the love of god put the option to use the lock of the sceen over the silly mute button. I think we can hit the up/down keys to adjust the volume like big kids.

Maybe I missed something from the notes on the last operating system update. But Ive noticed now that my iPad screen lock switch now is acting like a mute button. So sliding the switch doesnt not prevent the screen from rotating with acceleration / gravity, it simply mutes the sound. The anti rotate symbol no longer appears, instead a mute on/off symbol appears when the switch is activated. Have I overlooked some setting, or is it just broken?
