Typewriter...a forgotten trusted machine

Covering the recent Boao Forum in China was a real eye-opener. It was actually the first time that I literally got my hands on a wireless lap top. No clumsy wires except for the electricity connection. But once the batteries were fully charged, I could work anywhere I like and transmit the stories at ease within the room. To think I was filing the stories from one corner of huge China was incredible. Coming from the days of typewriters where we used to send stories through fax, telephone and telex whenever we were overseas, this new speedy way of filing news reports is most helpful.
