    Actually, I can think of very good reasons to type up word documents in car. One of them being:

    You have to be out of town for the weekend. You have a 5 page paper due on Monday, you already wrote 2.5 of them. You have to write the other 2.5 somewhere, right?

    Just my .02

    Peace,

    normaly the keyboard isnt in that much use, so I think its a good place on the visor for the keyboard, looks nice..
    It's not a problem of typing a document, but the fact that it's such an odd position from which to type, relative to desktop typing, that it's almost impossible to hit the key you want without first hunting for it. Then, there's the issue with the keyboard/sunvisor moving everytime you hit a key. Not everyone's sunvisor stays where it's supposed to be once it's pulled out of it's stowed position. Mine got like that in a short while, and it got to be too much of a distraction to use. IMO, it would be better to take a micro keyboard, like a Dauphin, and velcro it to the dash or the console. At least that way, it's a little more natural-feeling for typing, and it's not getting in the way of your view.

    I never use the sunvisor when I drive anyhow, so having the visor down is a huge distraction. Bah.
