Browse Web w/Phone: Rukavina Good

When you’ve been using your cell phone to browse the web, one of the things that is constantly frustrating is the need to use the phone keypad to “type” URLs and other information into the phone. This is done using a special technique which involves pressing number keys an appropriate number of times to call up the required letter. For example, you press 2 once for A, twice for B and three times for C. One of the more frustrating things is that when you want to type in the same letter more than one (i.e. www), or letters which share the same key (i.e. fred), you have to pause slightly to wait for the phone to know you want to keep typing. I found tonight that one of the fringe benefits of having the last name Rukavina is that it’s possible to type this on a phone keypad without ever repeating the same key twice in a row.
