Tram Town

We got a bunch of 1005HA EeePC's in our house late last year and have been using them in many ways. In the office where I work I plug in a screen (1920x1080), KB, and mouse and end up with a very usable dual-screen setup with the main document I am working on above and browsers and support documents below on the NetBook's screen. In this configuration it will operate for about 5 hours on the battery. Next week I will take in some Velcro™ cable ties and a USB hub and it will all look quite tidy and require plugging in two cables for "docking". Unplug to go home, surf the web using my Virgin modem ($149 for 10 GB expiring in a year) on the tram and keep it with me the whole weekend. It's all very satisfying.

The iPad looks lovely and many will want one including me. Here's a thing, though: when it is laid out flat on a table (which would look to be a common position for typing/writing), how will it detect a change from portrait to landscape? I'm assuming the accelerometer relies to some extent on gravity as a means of noting the position that the device is being held. Where am I wrong?
