When you are part of the minority, you learn quickly to adapt. Being a
left on many a device that is slightly right-handed biased, I feel
everyone's pain.

I have not gone as far as switch the preferred stylus hand. I prefer to
grab the page w/ my stylus and drag it up or down about a page. This
works pretty well in opera. Fortunately, because using the stylus in the
left hand and hitting the scrollbar is very uncomfortable. I wouldn't
mind the N800 have a personal preference for scrollbars on the left
instead of the right.

There is a bug about lefties:

I know that 1/5th of the global population is lefty. I wonder what the
current population breakdown is for this list is?
