    Dude, that's the actual devices fault.
    And if you're talking about when you're typing something and on the internet then it's Safari's fault.
    The only thing I hate is sometimes when I touch the backspace it will delete everything instead of just one character.

    To stop it I normally touch another key.
    By the time that happens it usually deletes half of what I typed but it's better than the whole thing.

    Hmm.. first time I noticed the lag. I don't type that often... but still. I hope Apple will fix the lag in 2.2 firmware.

    You do know that you can enable Caps Lock in the keyboard settings, and then just hit shift twice to use it, right?

    phones with physical kb's still crash...

    Jobs was right about the virtual keyboard. You get very fast at it eventually, the auto correct is awesome, and each app can tailor the keyboard to its own needs and this greatly speeds things up.

    Contrary to popular belief, Caps Lock is not cruise control for cool.

    SINCE WHEN???

    But yeah, that really isn't the keyboard's fault, it's something to do with the app itself.

    I stumbled across that one day. Wish I had stumbled over it sooner.

    Just remember to press shift twice quickly.
