iPad Virtual Keyboard censorship

This thought has come to mind as there are many voices out there who have commented on the iPad’s virtual Keyboard‘. Many have found it hard to type on and found themselves unable to touch type on it as the very nature of touch sensitivity makes it impossible make contact with the ‘keys’. In other words, you can’t type long missives, emails or any other textual input.

What if the iPad is a form of Censorship? Making it hard to comment on the internet, create content, write Twitters/email/Blogs whatever. Because the keyboard it too hard and frustrating to enter anything other than simple search phrases. A consumer ONLY device, made to fill the passive vessels that constitutes the bulk of the internet readership? Content omnivores as Pew Research calls them, an advertising and News consuming only population.

Chinese Search Bots

I was thinking that if you wanted to stop Chinese Search Bots and Hackers you could put up a photo of Tiananmen Square and the guy stopping the tanks. But NO, they are still visiting my Idea Forecasting site.

Perhaps maybe if I’d changed the name of the JPG file so that their search engine could identify that photo :-)
