    I've noticed in several videos now (latest one on CNET, Crave NYC) that when users are turning on/off items like bluetooth and wifi that they use a swipping action (similar to deleting) to toggle the switch, and they don't always get it on the first try (looks especially funny when they are demoing something for video). I thought this a little funny because since day one, I'd just 'tap' them to toggle. Much better success rate, less finger action, and no need to direct either left or right for on or off... Anyway, I just thought I'd pass it on because I've noticed others having difficulty with something that most iPhone users do daily (ie: turn on/off wifi)

    How many swippers vs. tappers?

    I'm a tapper. Why make things harder than they need to be?

    Me too, but general tapping is more reliable.

    I once swiped, but now I tap.
    Tapping is good, when properly executed. :)

    I usually tap, but slide just for the hell of it sometimes. :)

    I didn't even know you could slide until I did it out of curiosity one day. I was amazed. :D

    Heck, I didn't even know you could tap before now, so I was obviously a swiper. Might become a tapper now, as it definitely is easier. :)

    Wow, I feel just a tad stupid. I had no idea you could tap those.

    When I got my phone and started playing with it, those togglers looked like they needed to be slid, so I did. I never tried tapping until now. I like it better.:)

    Tapper. Swiped the first couple times and then realized there was an easier way!
