There's no machine that doesn't you make learn a new input way. Even the
Newton. None of my newton recognized well my numbers, so I took a look at
the way it recognizes it and... well, it resulted I had to learn to write
numbers reversing my usual motion. And I never got the newton to recognice
And keyboard, what an ackward invention that places the keys in a way that
actually makes us more difficult to type (see DVORAK layout for english
people)... and how fast we can type when we learn to use it. I write faster
on my keyboard than by hand.
My point is: don't dismiss a new tecnology that can be lead to great
improvement in the future. People did with the OMP and look at us!
