Cool thanks for the info - I had wondered what the "i" button was for - 
it didn't seem to do anything for me, guess I need to try harder :o)

Rolling fingers across it would definitely be easier - will give it a go.

As for scrolling - I'm sure I'll get more used to it over time anyway - 
and thinking about it a bit more, it's not like you can really tell 
where the edge of the screen is on an iphone like you can with a 
touchpad without looking, so it probably wouldn't be too easy to use anyway!
