Default Typing with two index fingers

Got the link(http://leononeverything.blogspot.com/) from a friend. His post was fun, apparently he is lebanese. I tried to write with my index fingers on Samsung S4 and it works. But so what? Better to pick up the phone and write with your thumbs...

Don't understand what this is about???

I dunno. I always type on my android smart-phone using two index fingers (when I actually do that, which isn't that often). I type with all ten fingers on a normal keyboard.

As for 'efficiency' from what I've been reading, those who are the most plugged into the most number of communications devices are the least productive in the workplace. Go figure.

On my phone, certainly with my thumbs.

What is this "call" you speak of?

I just realized my error here. With a smart-phone I use only one index finger. The other hand is needed to hold the damn thing!

If I have so much to type that I need to put it down to click away with two fingers, I'm just not going to do that - I'll wait until I'm at home and type a proper message on my computer keyboard (with two hands) when it is nice and easy.
