    I managed to find this out while trying to type a hellishly long url into my ipod's address bar. What this bookmarklet will do is make a tinyurl for the page you are currently viewing. It will then take you to the tinyurl page that tells you the link you just created. This is very useful for posting images, videos, etc that cannot be uploaded on the touch. It also somewhat makes up for the lack or copy/paste.

    So here's how to install:

    1. Go to google.com and add it to your bookmarks.
    2. Navigate to the bookmark in the Bookmarks menu
    3. Click edit.
    4. Click the bookmark, and tap the address portion to edit the bookmark's address.
    5. Delete the entire url that is currently in the text field and enter the following: JavaScript:window.location.href='http://tinyurl.com/create.php?http'+window.location.href
    6. Rename the bookmark TinyUrl Bookmarklet (not necessary)

    Enjoy!

    I decided to make a separate post for another bookmarklet ive made: Retrieve Gamertag. This bookmarklet asks you to enter a gamertag, then takes you to a page showing the status of that person on xbox live.

    To install:

    Repeat the same process as above, except for #5 enter:

    javascript:var%20name=prompt('Enter%20Gamertag(s) (separated%20by%20commas%20-%20no%20spaces):','');if%20(name!=null){alert('this will take you to a preferences page - simply click Save to continue. Bookmarklet created by parm289.');window.location.href='http://www.1337pwn.com/iphone.html?gamertag='+name+'&editgamer=&save=Save'};if%20(name=null)window.location.href=window.location.href

    You will need to be using the horizontal keyboard to enter this.

    Hope this is useful.
