I frequently turn my Fire HD 8.9 upside down. That way, I can charge it while watching videos.

Anyone else do this?
Me too and as a bonus the design of my case allows for it.

It just makes more sense to me to have the power button and cord jack at the top.

Hehe. Funny.

Yeah, I usually prefer the cord and power button on top, too.
I'm annoyed at some apps that have fixed orientation and don't allow me to flip.
