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.

Haha, the geek in me wants that keyboard!!

However, it'd be extremely inefficient if I were trying to learn & use a couple different layouts for different languages. When I use french keyboards, I need to see the keys since they're too unfamiliar to me. Remapping a US keyboard using a french layout is too confusing for me.

Funny, having lived and worked for a number of years in France, the UK, and Germany, I have to switch layouts depending on the language I'm touch typing in...
