    I gave it a don't care but that's not 100% right. I just don't care enough to say Hell Yes. I use an Apple Bluetooth keyboard with my iPad occasionally when I have a long list of calendar items to update or a document to work on but really don't mind using the touch screen for most of my interaction and the keyboard for faster typing. I would accept more options gladly and do use basic shortcuts for copy/paste and or undo but can't possibly remember every combo since this is not a daily use item for me.

    So, I support your want for more features if this is something you would like to use more of but can't really say I am overly excited personally one way or the other.
