    Hello all,
    I bought an iPod touch a couple of weeks ago, and really like it. I've found something that happens that isn't explained by the instruction manual or a quick search round forums.

    It's this - on some web pages, with the ipod in landscape screen, the screen darkens and a little popup appears when I hold my finger in the lower right hand corner of the screen (just above the multiple pages icon). It says simply 'Action'. Any idea what this does? It goes away when I lift my finger, and I know that its not displaying the path to a link.

    It doesn't seem to happen on all pages, but it does on this one -

    I'm hoping it could be some sort of copy/paste action?



    Thanks in advance for any input

    It's a way to find where a link or button leads before you press it.
