    I was disappointed with the case I bought, so I've been looking for a different one. I looked at the apple case, but noticed a potential problem: the home button ends up on the left when used for landscape mode. This can be an issue since some games have a fixed orientation in which the home button should be on the right (harbor master HD, and some iPhone games I was playing were this way). Anyone else noticed this little problem?

    The iPad apps i have can rotate in all orientations. (ie Pandora, twitterrific, shazam) I really dislike the official apple case. For $40 im sure there is a better case out there. So I'm looking for another one.

    Why would you have it in landscape mode while playing games? It's so hard to use that way. I just fold the cover back and hold it like a book.

    Does the case provide any resistance to that kind of position. I didn't pick up a case because i was worried the front flab wouldn't lie flat against the back if there wasn't pressure holding it there.

    LOL. Does the Orbino case have a big jewel embossed on it?
