    I've been enjoying my iPhone, the interface is great. But I'm wondering, shouldn't the Home screen be orientation sensitive?

    (pardon the horrible photo-chop. I actually did it in .ppt, yuck)

    shouldn't it? That's rather subjective.

    I suppose they could have chosen to make it reorient itself if they thought they wanted it to work that way, but they didn't.

    It seems more like a design choice than an error to me.

    Right, I didn't intend to make it sound like an error.

    My point is that if the accelerometer was enough of a selling point to be mentioned it should have been more fully integrated.

    the problem with making the home screen orientation-sensitive is that you'd have to make all the applications that way as well. weather, stocks, calculator and calendar could all really be done without. i think it's fine the way it is.

    Shouldn't everything be orientation sensitive? If apple incorperates that type of technology they should put it to good use.

    Same could be said of an awful lot of features Apple decided to omit.

    I'm still holding out for integrated communications satellite operation and a cigar guillotine.

    I'd be happy with it just syncing/connecting with AddressBook properly.
