How do you take your tablets?

It is nice to see that there is some usability data to back up my own usage preferences. In iPad users prefer landscape mode, late-night browsing they claim that there is a preference for using the iPad in landscape mode and late at night.
Developers take note - as I have long suspected - if your iPad app doesn’t do landscape mode you are not meeting a majority of users’ expectations.

One interesting question which the article doesn’t answer is whether the preference for landscape mode is a result of Apple’s design and late night operation. My though process on this is that the charging connector on an iPad is located on the bottom of the portrait display and I tend to charge the iPad overnight so it is ready to use in the morning. The location of the charging port on the iPad makes it annoying to use in portrait mode while charging.

Is there are a product here - a charging cable with a right angle cord?
