thumb typing all the time -- on blackberry for to-do-item notes

Thumb typing, or, thumb-and-index typing, is not that difficult. You can do that pretty fast after a few hours. The problem is the software – there is no auto-spell checking, and no auto-correction in blackberry (perhaps I missed something).

Thumb typing is faster than writing pad and real time recognition, but I guess we need both, because we still need drawing. Mouse drawing is not good. Touch screen is useful here.

Anyway, thumb typing is worth it. I know, I am slow to pick it up, but I will begin to really do thumb typing on my blackberry to make notes, instead of using pen and paper.


This means I will use thumb typing all the time. Note that I have electronic notes that I take in VIM (not MS Word, since VIM also have spell checking – it does not have auto-correction – or I should say I am not using that, I am not user whether VIM has auto-correction or not). Those notes are detailed, and have a lot of content – that is why I use electronic notes for them long time ago. I always laugh at my college who are still using papers to do those kind of notes. It is amazing, a lot of them still doing that, make notes on paper!

However, I have been using paper doing the to-do-item notes all the time. This kind of notes, they are short, just a reminder. Also, they must be extremely portable, not limited on computers.

Now, I am going to move this to blackberry. I cannot draw anymore, but for those to-do-item notes, I do not do drawing anyway.

Note that I blog this, because I believe this kind of thing is important for computer professionals. Too many computer professionals are too behind on using computers!

You have to express more your opinion to attract more readers, because just a video or plain text without any personal approach is not that valuable. But it is just form my point of view
