    Is there no way to select text to copy from the browser?

    Unfortunately, I think that is the only way to select text that is not in a textbox. I agree that it's a bit of a hassle.

    Someone said the xscope browser app is less of a hassle but nowhere near as easy or fun as on the apple products.

    Ok, so even after you hit menu> more> select text, how do you highlight the text you want to select? For some reason it only highlights one or two letters for me.
