Touch typing definitely gets it done for me except when I'm using one of my many Palm-OS devices. Then touch typing doesn't apply since I never got one of them folding keyboards that you see on the market for them.

The way I figure it the times I'd want to use a keyboard with my Palm device is normally when I have access to my laptop or desktop machine and they have keyboards already.

Stereo-typing? On one hand I avoid it like the plague and on the other some folks insist on being a living stereo-type of one fashion or another. At least that is my experience.

I get a laugh everytime I meet one of those folks as they are they ones usually complaining about the stereotype affecting the "grouping" they belong to and I don't necessarily refer to race either.

Geno-typing? That stuff scares the hell out of me. If Big Brother® ever figures out a way to use that to predict people's behavior we are all in big trouble.

Maybe I'm being paranoid there, but paranoia has saved my butt on more that one occasion during my lifetime.

    Scarier thought: Typing genes and using them for goofy purposes such as carreers to see who is "genetically qualified" for the job, and insurance to see if you are too risky to insure. Although, I do not think this will happen in my lifetime, so I am not worried about it :). If you have not seen Gatica yet, this is where these ideas came from (for me) ;).
