    How do I close aps and stuff. I mean, it seems like AIM and facebook is on 24/7 and pressing the homebutton only "minimalizes" it. How do you actually close stuff so that for example, when you open up safari, it doesn't just go to you last visited site.

    It doesn't do anything! Err, at least it doesn't seem to be doing anything... (I'm assuming home button is the one at the bottom of the screen thats round with a square in it.

    The only epic fail I see here is the guy saying "EPIC FAIL" has an avatar that appears to have two flying p*nises on it. I dont know...

    A simple spelling error or perhaps a translation error (Some people do speak more then one language

    ). Did you try and look up the word "minimalize" in the dictionary ? Then did you bother to compare it to the word "minimize" ?

    min·i·mize (mn-mz)
    tr.v. min·i·mized, min·i·miz·ing, min·i·miz·es
    To reduce to the smallest possible amount, extent, size, or degree.

    min·i·mal·ize (mn-m-lz)
    tr.v. min·i·mal·ized, min·i·mal·iz·ing, min·i·mal·iz·es
    To make minimal.

    min·i·mal (mn-ml)
    adj.
    Smallest in amount or degree.

    I doubt it

    Yes, that is the home button.

    Follow these steps to actually close all applications running as background processes rather than just hiding them:

    1. Open up the Facebook or AIM application (or any application)
    2. Now, hold down the Home button without releasing it until your iPod goes back to the home screen, at which point you can let go. It usually takes between 6-8 seconds.

    You've now closed all applications that were running, rather than hiding them.
