I. It’s 1995, and I’m in seventh-grade keyboarding class. The school computer lab has clunky greige Apple computers loaded with Mavis Beacon software. We dutifully practice placing our fingers on the “home row”: the left hand on ASDF , right on JKL; . We practice typing short words, then sentences, aiming for accuracy and speed while keeping those fingers on the home row. This goes on once a week for three months. The class is easy. I get a decent grade. Then we switch to Health class, which is much more exciting because it talks about s-e-x. Because it’s 1995, health class spends a lot of time teaching about contraceptive foam and the sponge. Neither the sponge nor the home row method will serve me in my adult life. II. It’s the week that vaccines become available to New Yorkers age 30+, and I’m venting to friends in a group chat that I haven’t been able to book an appointment online yet. “That’s because Katie is probably typing in that she lives in BROKOLYN NWE … [Read more...] about Why Am I Sp Bad At Typign?

Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 Score Details DT Recommended Product “Microsoft's Surface Laptop 4 is easily the best in the line so far, thanks to huge advances in performance.” AMD chips widely available in configurations Thinnest 15-inch laptop Superb build quality Great typing experience Long-lasting battery life Older AMD chips hold back performance Thick bezels, poor webcam MSRP $1,800.00 Well, Microsoft did it. It finally fixed the Surface Laptop 4. The previous model was plagued by poor performance and a lack of solid configurations to choose from.
