I did honestly try to touch the screen on my buddies phone when i couldn't go to the option I wanted.

I HATE regular phones now, such a pain in the ass trying to get anywhere on them!

I have honestly tried double-clicking on avatars, fully expecting them to expand to fill the screen. How disappointing when they don't.

I know that when I switch back to a PC from my Mac, I'm always trying to use the two fingers to scroll or use the two fingers plus button click for left click. I find myself getting frustrated all the time from it.

I do that all of the time! That feature really needs to be added to desktop browsers. :cool:

I also find myself trying to zoom in on pictures by just tapping (clicking) them.

I have to say this is the first time a PDA/phone/smartphone ever caused me to try to replicate actions on a desktop PC. That really says something about the iPhone.

In other news I was shocked when I realized my PC could actually do copy and paste....:p

i occasionally try to drag web pages up or down with the mouse to get to a different section and wonder for a moment "why the hell isn't this working?" when all i end up doing is selecting a bunch of text on the page...

I still try to double hit the space key for a period on my computer. I get kind of frustrated because that means I have to backspace when it does not work.

It's definitely a habit I have carried to the iPhone from blackberry.

My tablet PC has a touchscreen, so a lot of things I'm still able to do in the same way, but it takes a harder touch. It is a resistive screen. Great extensions for firefox include grab-and-drag, for the same scrolling experience, and geckoTIP for input panel compatibility. main thing I miss is the phone calling ;) and the anywhere Internet access.

I catch myself trying to use the iPhone pinch feature on my touch screen Nuvi all of the time to zoom. So frustrating!
