[access-uk] Re: Ipod Touch! and Macs

Hi,

OK, got you.  The same thing as I do now.  In fact, I often use the mobile
site on the desktop as well for speed's sake.

Hi Hussein,

No, I don't.  I just use http://m.facebook.com and find it OK.

Would you happen to know of one for Facebook?  Would save me logging in to
