Kids. They love happy slapping, reality TV and texting. And it’s this last great love affair that cre8txt are catering to, with their new translating keyboard. It plugs into a free USB port, and can then be used to type in the same way that you type on a phone keypad. The software translates the text slang into the real actual English language.

Death of literacy, blah, blah, text speak is the scourge of a generation, blah, blah, whatever happened to writing in longhand, blah, blah. But seriously, is this really, as they claim, “text input for a new generation”? My English Literature professor is turning in his grave as we speak.
