The perfect (and perfectly logical) computer keyboard for the one-finger typist. If you never took typing and still use the hunt-and-peck method, here’s the keyboard for you. No more searching among the asdf’s and qwerty’s – now just follow the traditional alphabet to find the letter you need (for experienced typists, push a button to return to a standard keyboard layout).

Really?  I remember learning to type, back in high school, it’s one of the few things that I remember learning and thinking to myself “golly this is going to come in handy in the real world”

  1. I never took typing. I thought it was the most sexist thing in the world to assume I wanted to take typing, so I made them drop me from the course. Now I wish I had learned to type correctly. If they had called it ‘keyboarding’ (which my middle and youngest sons took in high school), I might have taken more interest in it. If I knew then; blah, blah, blah.

    1. Yeah, I can get to 50-60 wpm when I’m on a roll. I don’t hunt and peck, but it’s not proper typing either. It’s painful to watch hubby type, making hunt and peck literal. My two younger sons can do over 100 wpm regularly. It looks like speed typing.

  2. I took zero-period typing in high school. Zero-period is when you get up 45 minutes earlier than you would otherwise in order to fit in an extra class. Very Bad Idea. That was the only class I ever failed. Not practicing may have been a factor too. I now can touch-type. Multiplayer online games succeeded where zero-period failed.
    This concludes my pointless story of the day.
