The end of the keyboard

Nothing to do with banking, except that banks run on technology and one key piece of technology is about to die: the keyboard.

I've predicted the end of the keyboard for years, as it's not intuitive or natural to type.  We just do it because we've learned it is the only way to use today's computers effectively.

My prediction is that keyboards will disappear by 2020 as intuitive video and voice commands move us to seeing, touching and talking with technology, rather than typing and staring at technology.

What I didn't know is that Apple was going to beat me to it:
