Although typing may be faster and reliable, research shows that handwriting still retains its unique advantages.

A century ago, the handwriting was a prestigious job but not for everyone. Phrase “Write my paper” had a little bit different meaning than now. In the modern society, people prefer typing, and handwriting is left for special occasions such as small notes, congratulation letters, and private diary writing. At first sight, the battle between typing and handwriting might seem to be no more that the latest gossip, but it may be another tool that we need to get used to. But maybe the uniqueness of handwriting is still there.
