Rhona we have an iPhone developer at

conde nast publications ladies and

gentlemen let's hear it for Nate Bowen

we have contestant they're going to go

through the first is about 500 to 600

words at their speeds that won't take

but a few minutes to type through in

addition to that since this is the

mediocre typing championship we have a

more challenging typing test after that
