Hello Fellow Addicts!

I apologize for my lack of new posts lately, I’ve returned back to college and unfortunately, that means my time is pretty limited.  However, I recently stumbled upon a great article about how The Simpsons helped Apple develop their touch screen keyboard and I figured “hey since we’re all tappers” it’d be great to share with my fellow Addicts!

Who remembers this early episode of The Simpsons?

Well it turns out that small 10 second clip had a large part to do with the way the iPhone keyboard is designed.  For more on the story check out: http://www.fastcodesign.com/3017039/how-the-simpsons-fixed-apples-iphone-keyboard?partner=rss

Until next time Addicts!
