    Just got around to trying Instapaper and it is wonderful. Thanks so much for all the work you do in this area. It made me change from Explorer to Firefox, but is so great an app that it is worth it.

    Again, thanks.

    Another great podcast this week. Love the new length 🙂

    I wonder if any of your listeners know of a keyboard shortcut for “Go To Location” for the K1. In a sane world, Alt-G or Alt-L would be such a shortcut but, alas, no such luck.

    I use the Tech Tip you offered in an earlier podcast to reposition the location so that I can grab a better highlight. I have to push way too many buttons just to enter the desired location.

    A million thanks,
