Hands on with Google Handwrite, Google's new search feature

It's far easier to write when standing and only having one hand free than typing. Typing isn't panacea, and I really enjoyed the handwriting on the Newton devices because once trained it worked flawlessly, quickly and seamlessly.
Bravo for Google- I may start carrying around a stylus once again.

Not true, as long-time Newton users like myself will attest to. I could enter text a LOT faster on my MP2000 than I can on any iOS device. I'm a very fast regular typer, much slower on a BB-type keyboard, and even slower on an iOS keyboard. Actually writing it out speeds things up a lot - if the recognition is correct.
To an atheist, G. K. Chesterton somewhere remarked, the universe is the most exquisite mechanism ever constructed by nobody.
