    I recently bought a bluetooth keyboard / case for the ipad2. While its great for things like this, or emails, etc.. in safari i cant quite figure out how to scroll. Is this possible?

    You want to be able to scroll in Safari using an embedded frame - i.e. a 'window within a page'? For that, you need to use the two-finger scroll gesture - instead of scrolling, as usual, with one finger, you need to use two fingers at the same time. It's an acquired art, but you'll soon get used to it.

    Sorry, but Safari (and all the other browsers, AFAIK) won't let you use the arrow keys to scroll. You'll have to continue to touch the screen and flick up or down.

    Just the way the iPad works with these Bluetooth keyboards (well, with my Zaggmate and Apple keyboard...).
