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 very much enjoyed this article. Thanks Thom.

I've often wanted to write a book where I started out in one language and slowly started changing to another language until, maybe 85% of the way through the book it was changed completely to the second language.

There are only a few problems.
1) I don't have enough time because it isn't a high enough priority for me.
2) I don't know a second language (which is a reflection on the U.S. school system of the 60s and 70s and maybe till today.
3) I'm probably not a good enough writer to write a book that enough people would be interested in reading.
