    So, among all this sad iP4 stuff about it not working properly, dropping calls, etc, I thought I would post something on a happier note that I discovered today!!

    While scrolling through a long website I accidentally figured out that if you touch the screen with one finger and then scroll down with another it will zoom in and out!!! I'm always trying to make some website print bigger so this is SO much easier!!

    Just thought I'd share! I'm easily amused but mainly, I LOVE new unmentioned tips about my iP4!!

    You can also double tap on text to have it auto zoom to fill your screen.

    the 2007 iPhone Announcement Keynote called, they want their bullet-point back.

    as a side note, i went to youtube and watched the 207 iPhone keynote, and Steve said that "multi touch works like Magic". The whole "magical" term was being used since the beginning... doesn't seem weird anymore

    i do miss the "old, pre-cancer" steve, he was actually humorous "multi touch has X, Y, Z... and BOY, did we patent it"

    Its hard to remember the 2007 days when there was no app store and the only icons you could add to your home screen were web links (if I recall correctly).

    web links came later. there were only the apps on the first screen and dock. no spotlight, no additional screens. hell, additional home screens that slide side to side was a jailbreak app first.

    It doesn't matter... it's still just two fingers - and what difference does it make if they are on the same hand or not? The sensors are sensing two touches and pinching or zooming accordingly.

    yeah, i can do the same thing using two PogoSketch stylus pens in separate hands, or holding them like chop-sticks.

    Hey, we all sometimes miss the obvious. Anyone who claims they've never done something like this is lying. (they just may not have done so quite as publicly...

    Thanks for being a good sport about it. Know that you've brightened the world a little bit by (inadvertently) creating a few laughs.
