== Tips for the Touch:
Tip 1:
Having trouble clicking these links on the Touch? Simply copy the link like you'd normally copy text, navigate to your browser's address bar and press Space+Backspace+V.
Tip 2:
Want to close a single app on the Touch + without closing everything else down?
Short press the square button on the front and then scroll down until you get to the app you want, then click "Dismiss (app name)" to close it.
