I work in law enforcement. Since ordering the TextBlade, I have worked five different assignments. It seemed so long ago when I worked inside of an office, in the most un-coplike job ever. I did do a lot of typing, and I thought the TextBlade would give me a better typing experience than my Department-issued keyboard.
Later, I worked as an investigator. There were many a time I wished I had that little TextBlade with me so I could type out notes in the field with a keyboard that would fit into my pocket. It sure would have come in handy.
Then, I went back to patrol. I thought about how much time I could have saved with the TextBlade. I could have typed reports using a TextBlade and my iPhone 6s+ instead of driving back and forth to the station.
When I was promoted to detective, I found myself typing even more reports, and boy that TextBlade sure would have come in handy.
I thought that making sergeant would mean less typing, and that is true to a certain extent. I don't type as much as when I was a detective, but there is still plenty of stuff to type. Every day I think of how great it would be to have that TextBlade with me so that I can type stuff while I'm out in the field. It would be such a nice tool to have. Not only for the various logs and reports that need to be typed and submitted, but for those group messages I send out to my subordinates... the ones that are longer than regular texts, but shorter than most emails. It sure would be nice to have that TextBlade instead of pecking and swiping on that virtual keyboard.
Now I have the feeling that I will be retired by the time that TextBlade makes its way to my mailbox. If I'm anything like my parents, I'll have old arthritic fingers and will probably prefer dictation to typing. Maybe I'll pass the TextBlade onto my little one and I will live vicariously through my child.
