Do Mac and iPhone users really need a file system?

Many Mac power users and developers are concerned about the iOS-ification of the Mac OS and how much more of that process will be found in sessions at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) next week in San Francisco. A recent developer blog post recalls talks by Steve Jobs from a 6 years ago, where he speculated on whether computer users really needed to interact with a file system. But to me, it also recalls a mostly forgotten Apple OS from around 20 years ago.

It was refreshing to see James award the advantage to Windows Mobile in 3 of 4 areas with the last one being a tie.

iPhone app review: MessagEase text entry method

Back in the days when I had a dedicated Grafitti area on my Palm OS devices I discovered an alternative text entry method (2002 to be exact) that was designed with overlays that you placed on top of the Grafitti area. This text entry method was optimized for stylus entry to minimize the distance you had to travel to enter text since QWERTY keyboards are designed for two handed computer entry. Exideas developed the MessagEase form of text entry that has allowed me to enter text accurately and quickly on various Palm and Pocket PC devices over the years. They have now developed and launched an iPhone solution in case you want to use something other than the default QWERTY keyboard provided by Apple.
