To be fair the extra couple of lines of code may have caused keyboard lag on early IOS devices like my iPod touch 3g. A capable device it was not!

My later iPod touch 4g could probably have handled it but then but then they would have had different devices exhibiting different behavior.

Typed on my droid with it's correctly capitalized keyboard.

Hawking thought this when he discovered/derived Hawking radiation from black holes. "Virtual" particles popping into existance exactly at the event horizon. Rather than annihilating as such particles typically do, one falls in and the other is released from the black hole.

This is a somewhat simplified account but the realization of virtual particles has been "known" for a few decades. Search youtube for "Susskind Black Hole" for a lecture series, about 16ish hours of material on this phenomenon.

Air is water with holes in it.
