Stop Sucking at Typing

You know what hasn't changed since in the business world for well over 100 years? That's right - the fact that we have to type, and often, type the same things over and over and over again.

While some of us have become masters of keyword shortcuts and hotkeys, there are some other things you can do to type faster and more efficiently.

TextExpander, for example, is a unique shortcut utility for Mac from Smile Software ( that allows users to design their own keyword shortcuts around phrasing and sentence structure they use regularly. For example, instead of typing your email address over and over and over again, TextExpander users can simply create a shortcut with the phrase "xemail"

The app also learns from users writing style (and even your spelling mistakes) and will actually recommend a shortcut if you're using a word or phrase regularlary or incorrectly as the case were).
