TV and radio star Ryan Seacrest was on the Shopper Electronics Present tonight to speak about Typo, the cellular keyboard startup that he co-based with CEO Laurence Hallier.

Typo is displaying off its upcoming keyboards for the iPad Air and iPad Mini, however my dialog with Seacrest targeted extra on the broader imaginative and prescient for the corporate and his expertise together with his first startup

Seacrest advised me that the corporate emerged from the challenges that he himself confronted whereas making an attempt to make use of his iPhone for work: “I actually was suffocating, fascinated with how I used to be going to work every single day, as a result of that is my workplace. The pill and the telephone is how I’m going to work.” And positive, there are different keyboard merchandise, however he argued, “I assumed they have been okay, however they didn’t fairly get all the best way.
