Google Scribe

Posted In Google |

Google ScribeThis morning I tried out Google Scribe, which is this tool that autocompletes as you type. It can be added to your browser via a bookmarklet to use it everywhere or if you just want to test it out you can visit

It has been criticized for producing clich├ęs as the text used is based on previously published material. It's a little wacky and takes a little getting use to, I even wrote this post using it. It'll be interesting to see how it people used it and whether or not it has any traction.

I must say it's very annoying having to press the ESC key all the time. It would have be better if it wouldn't automatically highlight and use a word or phrase when I press SPACE, when I want a SPACE not the word that scribe has suggested. I also had to fix up some of the grammer mistakes it had generated, so you're probably not going to be writing your essay or assignments with this.
