I'm having great difficulty making precise selections so I can delete random chunks, and placing the cursor precisely at the end of what I want to backspace over. Unless anyone can tell me how to do either of those things, I think I'm going to find this device very frustrating.
Making precise selections is not fun. I've mostly experimented with web text entry boxes, like the one I'm typing into now. It helps if you zoom in, making the selection start and end tabs easier to manipulate. But I find that selecting a larger chunk of text causes the whole screen to jerk and shake, and selecting beyond the currently displayed text, i.e., scrolling selection, isn't possible.
