comment How can I remove Emoji keyboard from iOS8?
I don't particularly hate them. I hate the fact that they are added silently by default.

Right. Then what is the difference between youtube (run on the web browser, not the app)?

So if the audio comes from HTML5 audio, it keeps playing, and if it is done by something else (e.g., flash), then it stops?

@Thecafremo Sorry if my description was not accurate. I am putting it to the background. It is the same with safari and chrome.

For example, coffitivity.com keeps playing the sound after closing the browser, but youtube.com stops playing if I close the browser while it is playing.

comment Why is the home button on iOS devices physical?
I am not saying that it has to be vertically symmetric. To the extent that the direction matters for a camera or a speaker, you can tell that direction from the position of that part itself. I don't see any reason the direction has to be told additionally.

Thanks for the answer, but some comments: One important concept was that the gyroscope automatically detects which way is up and the screen adjust accordingly. You were supposed to be freed from thinking about the direction and switching manually. Why would you need to know which side is up (other than for connecting the connectors or accessing other physical buttons)? My understanding was that being allowed to forget about it was the whole point of incorporating a gyroscope.

@R.M. That is kind of circular. Why then was the soft reset designed that way? Why couldn't it be, for example, pressing the power button alone for a long while (a few seconds)? What is iPod gear?
