iTunes Apps Tab in Landscape?

If your iPad is locked in landscape orientation when in the charging dock, apps in the Apps tab of iTunes will display in landscape orientation. (This also occurs when your iPad is not in the dock but connected to iTunes via the charging cable while in landscape orientation).

Nisus/Word Comment -- Mel Martinez writes:

Matt Neuburg (in TidBITS-131) ignores a feature of Nisus that I consider one of the strongest reasons to switch to Nisus after using Word for so long: scrolling speed.

While not quite as fast as a plain text editor, for a WYSIWYG editor, Nisus blazes through a document while Word crawls. This is especially true when the document includes graphics. I would put this under Matt's category "Moving around the document" and give a big nod to Nisus. Scrolling speed also affects the "Editing" category since a click-and-drag that results in a scroll is nearly twice as fast in Nisus as in Word.

Matt also glosses over Nisus's better options for placing a graphic (behind, in front of, or embedded in the text) than Word due to Nisus's separate graphics layer.
