Not sure how long this takes but I am going to say by 2015 my use of the keyboard will have almost evaporated completely and that cozy sound of tapping away will be a noise relegated to the past. As app developers churn out hundreds of ways per day to perform things that required a sit down internet experience it is for sure a sign that the train has left the station. Yes there will be hold outs and I even might be one of them but as soon as it is easier, faster and equally as good its game over.
