Typos

Typos

Keyboarding mistakes, those accidental strokes, misspellings and mistaken word selection we make while typing on a computer or phone are called Typos. These can be a result of ‘fat fingers’, bumpy rides, distraction/multitasking, uncontrollable movements or even dyslexia.

A type of neurosurgery that is used to treat involuntary movements has a side effect of forgetting how to touch type. This disruption in the ability to use a keyboard is called dystypia.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Google sees a typing error in one tenth of the billion plus searches every day.

Deep learning, AI and neural networks work to understand and correct our typing errors online, trying to figure out our input. The advanced language processing ensures that typos are taken care of proactively, and the search engine knows what we are trying to find using the various signals we give by our keystrokes.

Example: Typing Arnold S on the Google search bar provides the correct spelling of the actor, Arnold Schwarzenegger as Google knows most people spell it wrong.

We eventually may not have to type by hand anymore, as that is where the friction and the typos are coming from.

Typing by hand on a clickety mechanical keyboard(which have their own fanbase) or even on the smartphone is going to be replaced by technology beaming our thoughts, content or search word directly from our brains into PCs, smart glasses or wrists and get the perfect input every time.

We take typing on the keyboard for granted, but it is actually an extremely complex process. Even making errors is a feat.

What we achieved over the past few decades isn’t even necessary any more due to technology, which is taking care of our keyboard fiddling with spell check, grammar correction and autocomplete functions.

The Essay Memorization Technique

There are two stages to this method:

  • The creation stage: the objective is to generate high quality essay plans for every possible title that you could receive in an exam.
  • The memorization stage: transfer all of these essay plans to memory by methodically using active recall, spaced repetition, spider diagrams, and flashcards.

Benefits of this technique: you will be able to memorize so many essay plans by the time your exam is due, that a lot of these will come up at the exam anyway (or similar ones, so you'll have the possibility to compile bits of the memorized information to generate great essays from scratch).

For the most part, people on Instagram seem positive and content. They are earnest and sincere. 

But, scrolling through Instagram can quickly turn to an hour, which can feel like nothing compared to the hours spent elsewhere on the internet. What you see is of no particular value.
