the onion announces the death of the keyboard

Apple Introduces Revolutionary New Laptop With No Keyboard

A few points about getting rid of the keyboard:

Obviously predictive writing is a key feature to use the device.

Apple has usually been very good at localisation into different languages — which makes it rather encouraging for non-English speakers.

Google's massive investments in acquiring extensive, multilingual, googles of terabytes of text definitely make sense.

Why are iPhone users significantly complaining about auto-completion of whatever they attempt to type?
