Tog on the iPhone

Bruce Tognazzini (via John Gruber):

Beyond the accelerative, frictional scroll, as used with the contacts list, the browser apparently has the “smarts” to enable the user to selectively pick a single article, not by carefully enlarging it to just fit, but by indicating it and having the browser temporarily strip away everything else.  It will be interesting to see if the production iPhone can work this trick on most pages, or whether the Web site must pay close attention to the letter of the HTML law in every regard to make it work.  If the feature is forgiving, it is a home run.
