"Oh no — there's no "@" symbol! If you haven't realized it yet, the keyboard is focused only on the alphabet. Punctuation, navigation, and modifiers are nowhere to be found. But since we have two hands, those are exactly the kind of things that should be integrated in the left hand keyboard.

We haven't built out the left hand yet, but you can imagine that holding a chord on the left hand can modify the keys available on the right hand. For example, holding down the left thumb could be similar to shift (allowing capital letters), or holding down the left thumb and first finger could allow for number entry."

Did you even bother to read the complete summary? No. Well, let me qoute the relevant part for you: "According to the BBC, Morrell also 'acknowledged the already-leaked documents' viral spread across the internet made it unlikely they could ever be quashed,' but hopes to prevent the dissemination of a further 15,000 documents WikiLeaks is reportedly in the process of redacting."

Idiot indeed but it isn't the Pentagon
