The NY Times is wondering whether or not the iPad actually needs that little Home button at the bottom of the screen, what with the advent of multitasking gestures and whatnot. While they have a point, I can testify from experience that these gestures can cause issues with quite a few applications, and I’ve got them turned off on my device. I agree that the Home button feels a bit extraneous and that the screen could be made just a teensy bit bigger by removing that little circle.
