iScroll 3.0 Select Box Hacks

iScroll is pretty neat. It was created by cubiq as an attempt to create a workaround for position: fixed on iOS. Sencha Touch has a much more complete solution, but as a simple solution iScroll works fairly well. 

This could be a great time to rant about how mobile safari is the new IE6, and how having to use JavaScript to fix issues that have already been fixed on the web for a long time is ridiculous. (Seriously, just let position: fixed work as long as the viewport and zoom-levels are set properly.)

document.getElementById("showing").addEventListener("change", scrollToTop);

function scrollToTop() {

The result looks something like this (everything under the sort by stuff scrolls):
