I'm Back -- With Sore Thumbs
How do those kids do it -- endlessly pecking away on their phones with their thumbs?
I just tried it for six days while my laptop was "in the shop."
Some very nice people sorted out my laptop issues, and got me back on line again.
Not a moment too soon. Typing seems natural to all those little bones in the hand, but two thumbs did not evolve so humans could look up stuff and chatter on line.
Now, back to work. Anything happen in the last six days?-- GV

I am always amazed by how fast my college age grandchildren, as well has the fifth grade, high school and college students who I tutor, can use their thumbs. They type faster than I can talk or even think.

Classic wishful thinking, at a lethal level.
