As those pesky virtual keyboards on our smart phones get more cluttered, what if we could go back to the 1800s? No, Gmail is not suggesting we ditch its technology, but instead it’s hoping that we’ll revert to the typing method from that bygone era: Morse code. It has developed a keyboard that uses two simple keys: dot and dash. Its creators claim you can even tap out two messages at a time (hopefully your brain can keep up). Is this one case where the technology of the past will become that of the future? With Gmail having cast a spell over so many e-mail users, who’s to say it can’t change the way we type?
