So you have the typing option as well as voice recognition....or you could do both simultaneously?

Sounds interesting.

I would like to think we have progressed since the 1600's.

I agree DSTM! Instead I propose this to keep women in line. :thumbsup:

Well, if you believe some of the money schemes on the internet, those jobs already exist! :thumbsup:

Would love to have technology develop something that washes floors.
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.

One thing I never understood about technology was this:

We can make a car park by itself. Source1 Source2 Source3
We can take man to the moon. Source1
We can fly around the world in a military plane in about 12 hours (at the equator). Source1 Source2
We got devices the size of wallets that hold more than 10,000 songs. Source1

Yet we can't prevent people from stealing more than 2 copies of a newspaper at the machines.

To BlackSpyder, buy a pre-paid credit card at your local grocery store, and use it to make purchases online.

Nothing is on there which could not derive from a close contact :trumpet:

Rather as all the worldly appliances and fears (bag04 :thumbsup: ) i would like a world with no fear, a world where everybody is co-existing in absolute peace and balance. Where hunger is abolished and greed is something you read about in the history books.

Simple pleasures like have a drink with a total strangers, an open discussion with somebody you met in the subway. Leave your car open.. That would be my world...
