    I thinkmy thumb is getting repetitive stress injury from scrolling on my ipad too much.:eek: maybe I need to switch hands. Anyone else have this "problem"?

    Do you feel it in your entire thumb or only at the tip of it?

    There's no substitute for working out regularly and staying fit. :)

    If you're scrolling in Safari you can save time from scrolling back up by just hitting the top bar of the screen, that will bring you back to the top of the page. Hopefully that will help your thumb. ;)
