    @whmurray, as a fellow geezer, I do think you overstate your case in two ways. First, the keyboard did not eliminate the pen any more than voice recognition will eliminate the keyboard; what characterizes our age is the accelerating and increasing multiplicity of ways, means, things, events, people . . . But, second, no one can predict the future, and to insist that this ever-blossoming pace of change and innovation will continue through the lifetimes of the young is to tempt the fates and invite error.
