Automated greed

Here's something advertisers will "Like": Facebook is reportedly testing a "Want" button to be used by brands on product pages. Such a button would tell a user's friends what they're currently lusting over. -- Now there's an improvement, sharing your lust for stuff.

A Tablet on-screen keyboard.

After using my Android tablet for some time I still find that it's much easier to consume than produce. One of the major drawbacks is the on screen keyboard. I'm a touch typist and the on-screen keyboard DEFINITELY doesn't lend itself to touch typing. This makes it slower to input info and causes me to want to avoid the device for input.

I suppose that I could get a separate keyboard but I wonder if this doesn't negate the portability of the device. Plus, they aren't all that cheap. I guess I'll just have to keep trying.
