    Feature.

    This happens when your iPhone is docked (in an FM Transmitter, speakers, etc.) and the volume is not controlled on the iPhone, but through whatever it is docked in.

    My guess: New feature.

    When you think about it, what's the use of that bar? If its too loud, I'll turn it down, most likely with the toggle on the side and vise versa. Really it just takes up room. I think it looks cleaner.

    Some videos can be viewed in portrait, but most can't. Youtube, for example is always in landscape.

    technically its a movie because to stream audio it comes in as a quicktime movie with no video part

    but in actuality its just audio

    You can stream videos from online though in portrait mode.

    They took away the volume slider when the iPhone is plugged into anything that uses the Dock connector to output audio. If the volume cannot be controlled by the iPhone, the volume slider disappears. If you have headphones in or you're listening through the built-in speakers, the volume slider should be there.

    QuickTime dude...go to CNN's mobile site on your iphone, then watch a video...you be able to watch in either landscape or portrait.
