    EDIT: I did not find this on my own, nor is the above link my site. It is not my site and I did not make this find, I only found the actual article.

    Wasn't me who found it, I only found the article. :p

    Wish they didn't respring the device. Otherwise folders in folders would be great.

    So you can out it into a folder but once it's there you can't use it without taking it out? :( I guess that's OK if you don't use it but I hope they tweak the OS to allow this without the trickery and subsequent restriction.

    this is great put newstand stocks and compass into their own folder and put that fulder into another folder, no more extra folder of useless apps either.

    I just tried the same method with folders. Turns out, you can nest folders inside of others using this method. Of course, you can't use them without the iPad resetting, but kind of funny anyway.

    Edit: when the iPad restarts, the change is negated.
