red panda eating bamboo

iPad vs. proper punctuation use: The battle is joined.

I borrowed my dad's iPad and tried to touch-type (in landscape mode):
Mary had a little lamb; its fleece was white as snow.
The iPad has word suggestion built in. When I typed "its," the iPad suggests "it's".

The way you tell the iPad to accept the word it is suggesting is to type a space.

So much for touch-typing.

*sigh* I miss the Newton.
