Google Acquires BlindType, Brings Whole New Era Of “Did You Mean?”

Oct 4, 2010

Time to put typing mistakes on the endangered species list. Since its inception, Google has been on a mission to eradicate typing mistakes. First it was the condescending “Did you mean?” response to our typos. Then they got tired of waiting for us to make a mistake and said “Hey why don’t we just show them what they mean to type before they even type it (Google Instant).” What’s next? Acquiring a company who has developed a technology which will predict and correct your typing mistakes without you even touching the actual keypad! That’s right ladies and gentlemen, SOS has just gone futuristic. Just start tapping away and BlindType will take care of everything.
