P.S. Previous comment written on a tablet. I just can't be bothrred to try to clean up every bit of slop the virtual kbd lays down, and on a real kbd I'm obsessive about accuracy...

Thr Achilles heel of tablets (and even more do for phones) is input. I guarantee thst I can type faster and more accurately on a physical kbd than any but the most adept on a virtual kbd -- and WRT voice input, don't make me laugh! I'm "using"top-tier voice recognition s/w with one of the highest-rated mics, and it's like hunt-and-peck typing in terms of speed and dictating to a not-too-bright 10-year-old in terms of accuracy. Nothing will pry my physical kbds out of my hands until it doesn't entail a 90% reduction in speed and accuracy. Oh, and auto-spell-correction? fuhgeddaboudit. No better than voice recognition.

Nice joke, pseudonymous. The "special little snowflake" was precious. Speaking as "the man," with a couple of dozen publications and 30 years in my field, I can tell you special little snowflakes that if you can't take constructive criticism from a more experienced practitioner you might as well drop out of your grad program. You'll never cut it in either research or academia. Ignorance is 100% curable, as long as it's recognized early. Start out humble -- you'll have plenty of time to be a whiny, self-important wanker if that's what you've got as a goal.
