I often see noobies typing information on web pages using the mouse to click from one box to another and then returning to the keyboard to type the information for the new box. This jumping back and forth between the mouse and keyboard can usually be eliminated by simply hitting the tab key on the keyboard to move the cursor to the next box on the web form.
Patric Welch founded Noobie, Inc. in 2006 to help others effectively choose and use technologies to enhance their work and lives. The catchy company name earned Welch the name of Mr. Noobie®, but, in reality, Welch is an experienced and professional techie. Unlike most techies, Welch evaluates emerging technologies from a noobie’s perspective and provides technology education for all skill levels in a friendly, non-threatening way.
