Thoughts on this? http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/...ve-one-button-too-many/?src=me&ref=technology I don't know about everyone else, but I haven't touched the home button on the iPad in weeks. I find it much easier to pinch with 5 fingers to get back to the home screen, swipe up to reveal the multitask bar, and swipe left and right to fast switch apps. I've begun using the home button less and less and find it much faster to use the multitouch gestures. Though I don't agree with the article about slicing the bezel, I do agree that for the iPad, the home button is getting less useful. Once you try it for yourself, you might come to a similar conclusion. It's more cumbersome to reach down to push it, and then back up to the screen, plus there have been many times when I found myself actually looking for the button as I use it in all orientations. On the iPhone, it's completely different and I'm thinking that one of the only reasons it still exists on the iPad is for uniformity in the iOS device line.
