The first condition that decides whether you will be a millionair or not is whether you have such a dream or not. If you do, you will. If you don't, you won't.

Never underestimate the power of dreaming!

This way of typing is quite ineffective and SLOW. The typical internet user will NOT Waste his time typing pin yin correctly in order to reach a website....
The ease that the Chinese have when typing Chinese characters is the same ease you feel when you type English, EFFECTIVE and FAST.

The difficulty that you imagine the Chinese typer would have is simply non-existant. Your subjective view can't represent the fact.

The Chinese actually think the other way should be true. They don't understand why so "complicated and hard to remember" English is still being used today. Example:

Mississippi Department of Transportation = 密西西比运输部.

Which one do you think is easier to type? Of course, the Chinese one!
