  • 15 Year Old Sets New Speed-Typing Record On iPad


    Practice makes perfect is a common saying for a menagerie of examples. When it comes to typing, whether on your computer or iDevice, the only way to get better is to practice often. Figuring out the touch pad at first can be a little difficult however after toying with your device for a while, you can be a proficient user. You may look at someone you know (your friends, family, or some random person) and think to yourself "Wow they're amazingly fast at texting, tweeting, etc." Or you may think you've gotten good enough to be a pro typer. However, have you ever imagined someone typing the entire alphabet on an iDevice (iPad) in less then 10 seconds?

    Mikheil Saakashvili, son of the president of Georgia (Eastern Europe country), recently set a new record for the fastest typer on the iPad. He was able to type the entire alphabet with one hand in 5.26 seconds. This was a a 1.05 seconds improvement over the previous record holder, British teen Charlie Joseph McDonnell. McDonnell has held his title since 2010 (6.31 seconds was previous record). The Guinness Book of World Records awarded Saakashvili a plaque to signify the legitimacy of the record. A feat of this nature is absolutely insane; share your thoughts!

      Easy to do something that you've been practicing for months and months at and have developed the muscle memory to pull it off.

      But ask him to spell out a random sentence in record time and I'd bet he would mutilate it and not even come close.

      This record is useless....he's still gonna get his lunch money and apple juice jacked everyday at school by Bruno the 300lb. offensive lineman.

      Agree with Tim, When will you ever need to do this; and why _IS_ there a record? Records used to be cool but now it is things like "most unicycles thrown through flaming hoops with hands taped behind back."

      Isn't this an entertaining sort of thing? Just for kicks you know. It may not be some peoples' idea of entertaining, just like video games or ballet isn't fun for everybody but they are for others.

      It's fun for record holders or people wanting to try for a record to practice for one. That's fine isn't it? It's their type of entertainment. So what's this world like without entertainment? No movies, no video games, no Internet, nothing fun for anyone...it kind of makes life boring doesn't it?

      Just sayin'...what's the point of movies? It's just fictitious (for the most part) characters in fictictious stories that does what? They entertain us. Sooooo I guess it entertained the kid to type really fast and it entertains some people to read about it (and perhaps try it themselves).

      Ya it was probably entertaining for him (+/- the KGB's insistence that he "succeed or else").

      I would've been quite entertained watching the post-record celebration of his classmates stuffing him into a garbage can which is also known as "every Tuesday" for this kid.

      It's unfortunate that you see things in such a pessimistic POV. to each his own

      If the kid is happy then he's happy. If you're not about the article, then you're not. There's no need to flame on someone you don't really know, such as this record holder.
