What's Next: The New Keyboard for the Texting Generation

Given I'm just a couple years out and, as many who know me would agree, still as prone to immature humor as ever, one of my favorite sites continues to be College Humor. While running through the RSS feeds today, caught this article on what a keyboard redesigned for the texters and IM junkies among us may look like. Silly as it might be, makes me wonder if this would actually be met with success...

Avin - Hi! Thank you for visiting my blog.

In response to your comment, yes - I'm actually beginning to pay less and less attention to these trend agencies. And I think you said it just right. I think marketers use the trickle down effect and concentrate just on the influentials Perhaps, we should be thinking the other way round. The main challenge I think lies in how you can create compelling experiences for the masses - not just the influentials.

What do you think?

I guess you have to be addicted to texting to truly appreciate the keyboard. http://0-credit-card-offers.com/
