Leaky, about Swype, etc…
The “keyboard” on my phone is virtual, not actual keys; when I try to tap individual letters on the screen I often miss.
Swype is a LOT faster, and while the wild guessing drives me nuts sometimes, it’s right more often than wrong, especially with common words.
When you tap out individual letters, it makes the same wild guesses anyway — tries to finish words for you, and you really have to watch that it doesn’t put them in.
(That’s my excuse for certain language)
But talking would be faster still, if I can get used to it.
I’ve tried it….it doesn’t get odd words but seems to understand ordinary sentences.
I feel silly doing it, but you’re right… this is silly too!
I’m gonna have to make some posts on obscure strips with it, just to test whether or not they stay.
However well it works or doesn’t, I’m still thrilled, like a hick tourist on Mars….
It’s a big extravagance for me, in fact I chose it over cable TV.
But having libraries, e-mail, comics and friends in my pocket almost wherever I go is science fiction come true.
