To me, the “Talk it Type it” Google (GOOG) application has no limits to what it can be used for in the future — imagine writing papers without having to type them up. Simply conjure up an idea in your thick noggin and speak it to the Tejji App. Presto, you have transformed yourself from a babbling drunk to an undiscovered novelist!
Google Docs are already a very compelling way to write papers, blog posts, etc… without having to install any software on your computer. Cloud computing services allow you to basically use an online version of word on many web sites, and with the addition of a speak to type system when combined with cloud computing you may see authors coming into the fray who can write 10 to 20 pages per day of good material. These advancements in the writing profession as well as the advancements happening on the book distribution side mean that cloud created, voice-to-document articles and novels can be written extremely efficiently over a much shorter period of time.
Surely, Apple (AAPL) is coming out with the same thing — very soon you will see authors writing their novels on the beach by simply speaking into their cell phones like they used to do with tape recorders. (Think Hunter S. Thompson sitting at a bar writing a novel by simply talking into his cell). This could revolutionize the entire journalism, blogging, and publishing industries because authors will be able to increase productivity. Typing on a computer is repetitive, leads to repetitive motion issues, and is way less fun than talking into your cell phone at a local park or on your fishing boat.
