    When I read something I want to scroll straight up or down.

    In the Google browser, when you scroll on a page bigger than your column, you often move sideways (horizontal scroll). Is there a way to lock this out? My Blackberry did this much better...

    it auto fits but you can still too easily horizontal scroll so the text is cut off.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    I have found the keyboard thingie works well as a pg dn but it only pg dns about 1/3 of a screen...

    Get xScope and you've got a couple choices for a full page down with no chance for horizontal scrollin -- you can set it in the settings so the volume button scrolls up and down, or if you have the keyboard pulled out, space bar is page down, while shift+space bar is page up.
