PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless When Steve Jobs unveiled the iPhone, one of its most prominent and most controversial features was the on-screen keyboard. In as world dominated by devices with physical keyboards, it was seen as a joke, something that could never work. We know better by now, of course, but while I still prefer the physical feel and clicks of a real keyboard, a recent new endeavour of mine has made me appreciate the on-screen keyboard in a whole new way.

I hadn't heard Gangnam Style before I followed the link from this story. I had seen it mentioned loads of times, of course, and watched Ai Weiwei's take on it earlier today[1] (with the sound off). I can understand why you like it: it sounds like 2 Unlimited. Oh Holland, how can we forgive you.

As for touchscreen keyboards being more flexible: sure. Their main strength, compared to proper keyboards, is still that they aren't, you know, keyboards.
