one suggestion from a user i got while using it was to have a (-) icon next to 
the (+) one where you could remove things already associated. i don't 
particularly like it as it feels a lot like a very modal UI.

as we don't have resource dragging (yet?) we can't have a "dissassociate 
zone", though that would be very easy (though perhaps not easily 
discoverable?) to just drag something to a target that appears when dragged.

alternatively, we could go back to "pressing doesn't open immediately" and 
then offer the user something like a pie menu around the item they touch that 
offers things like "open", "remove from activity", etc. i know you don't like 
the idea of making opening harder than a single tap, though :)
