Default [Q]Moto X Has Landscape Homescreen Somehow?

I set my Moto X on top of my iShower Bluetooth speaker one day, and the screen suddenly turned to landscape; lockscreen, homescreen, everything.

Whats up with this?

Is this like a driving mode or something? I would think that but there was no driving mode notification.

This happen to anybody else?

I've attached a picture of the screen while in landscape.

Stock AT&T Non-Dev Moto X on 4.4.

Just because it has Corning Gorilla Glass™ doesn't mean it won't break/scratch, it is glass after all.

That is the alarm/desk mode. Play around with a magnet on the back and you can change modes. Chris

If you do want home screen rotation, Nova launcher provides that as an option.
