    That sounds an awful lot like an onion news network story.

    Does anyone really have that much trouble typing once you get used to the thing?

    Thats awesome! I wonder if I can convince my primary care physician to refer me to a plastic surgeon to go a step further and have the iphone fully integrated into my arm so I don't have to worry about cases and what not.
