    Swype just won the world record for the fastest text messaging. The guy did it in less than 35 seconds. I'm a ham radio operator and do morse code, and I don't think I could have sent the code faster than he was able to swype it. Here's a link to the article if interested:

    Wow, I know what you mean there.

    Swype may have serious competition soon, from Trace.

    However I don't think one can get Trace yet to compare.

    yeah, but the record broke would have been broke even if he took another 25 seconds. they are not clumped together. the texting input methods are kept separate. that is why the record is a hoax.

    "Alas, there’s a bit of a catch: this is a brand new record category. Texting speed records were previously all encompassing; be it T9, physical QWERTY, or touchscreen, they used to just lump it all together. That wasn’t exactly fair, so Guinness has begun to separate things out into proper categories. "
